Black Wallaby / Swamp Wallaby

This is a Black or Swamp Wallaby (Wallabia bicolor).  This relaxed looking individual was having a good feed around the camp sites at Tidal River in Wilsons Promontory National Park.

This species is common all along the east coast of Australia, and can be found in a variety of habitats. Like many of the animals at Wilson Prom, this individual is clearly used to being in the proximity of people.







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