Agile Wallaby

During my time in the Northern Territory that Agile Wallaby was the most common 'kangaroo' type animal we saw.  We had short views of Bandicoot and Antilopine Wallaroo, but I did not get any pictures.  I have to say I wish I had got dome pictures of the second species, just to be able to have a post titled with that name!

Agile Wallaby are the most common kangaroo in the tropical, coastal areas of Northern Australia - with in a nutshell describes where I spent my time when I was there.

Male Macropus agillis can weigh up to about 30 kg, with female being about half that size.







You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

They have such cute faces. Strange that they are purely in one part of the world in fact there are few Marsupials elsewhere except America. Have a good week Diane

They look friendly and cuddly. Not really words one should use to describe wild life.

Wow! What amazing animals.

What wonderful "wobbly" photos. My much-younger brother and I were in Australia many years ago, and he enjoyed a friendly boxing match with a wallaby.
Your photos bring back lots of memories.

I find it so hard to distinguish between Kangaroos and Wallabies. They look so cute, I feel like holding them :D
