“Hippity hop all the way. That’s all we do, every day,” this mama wallaby seems to say. She’s young and carefree, not to mention adorable. Look at those soft black eyes, that silky tan and white coat. If the wallaby looks familiar, that’s because it’s related to the kangaroo. However, it’s smaller than a full-size kangaroo by a fair bit. Otherwise, it’s pretty similar.
Both ‘roos and wallabies use their powerful hind legs to move around, and both have little pouches on their bellies in which they carry their young. Unlike full kangaroos, who live on the plains of Australia, the wallaby is most at home in the rugged areas of the Land Down Under, or in heavily wooded places.
Additionally, there are subgroups of wallabies – like the Agile or Sandy Wallaby. These usually live in northern Australia or even the island of New Guinea. And this mom? She’s an Agile. You can tell by her brownish coat that turns white on her belly and chest. But Agiles aren’t the only subgroup. You’ve got the gray-bodied and red-necked Red Neck Wallabies (guess where they got their name) who live in the greener parts of the country. Then you’ve got the Rock Wallaby, who is a lot like the mountain goats you’ll find in the northern hemisphere. Unlike other ‘roos and walalbies who have claws that help them grip the ground and hop so fast, Rocks have specially shaped feet that help them grip the rugged terrain they like best.
Wildlife Artists offers this fantastic Agile Wallaby in their Conservation collection. At 11-inches tall, this plush wallaby makes a fantastic addition to any wild life enthusiast’s stuffed animal collection.
