Well I’ll be... It’s a wallaby!
Number one question of the day: What’s the difference between a wallaby & a kangaroo?
Of course in my head there are several ways to answer this.
A) The way they are spelled.
B) Depending on the species of wallaby & kangaroo, any where from one to two feet in height and 50 to 120 pounds.
3) Tooth structure. But unless you are a macropod dentist, that’s less than obvious.
(PS. This is a red-necked wallaby, also known as a Bennett’s wallaby.)

I really miss this little guy. Mian moved from @perthzoo to @bristolzoo as part of the Goodfellows Tree Kangaroo global breeding program. The species in endangered and hopefully Mian will pass his important genes on to keep this program running. If you get a chance to visit, give him a kiss from me 😘. #goodfellowstreekangaroo #endangeredspecies #conservation #breedingprogram #perth #australia #perthisok #perthzoo #zoo #bristolzoo #zookeeper #zookeeperlife #habitat #naturephotography #nature #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wa #justanotherdayinwa #macropod #paupanewguinea #education #uk #hugs #kisses #needtovisitbristol #genetics

He always catches me trying to sneak up on him and get a pic of him sunbathing 😅

This is Babs. She is a beautiful rufous bettong who is in training for education programs at @tarongazoo #barbarabettong

Take a guess - about how many species of wallabies are there? 10, 20, 30.
Bonus: they belong to the family Macropodidae, which means _____?

On Tuesday morning Josh sent me this lovely video of a bettong and her joey hopping just as you go onto the gravel on Dorans Road.
Sadly tonight going to the pub for the draw and a meal we find this joey bettong that had been hit in pretty much the same spot.
Josh believe this joey to be larger than the one he saw on Tuesday but still rather heartbreaking.
Makes me wish the council hadn’t fixed the road after the storms so people had to slow down in this spot as it’s a huge roadkill spot and a place where people should be going slow.
I f*?%ing hate people.

“Wanna see my sharp pointy teeth?”( If yes, swipe for more)This little sweetie yawned which gave me a great view of her two lower front facing teeth! These lower teeth grasp onto vegetation, and the top front teeth tear it off 🌿

Update on the joey that was mauled by the dog😡he's resting up still can't hop due to his left leg being sore. I have noticed it's swollen a bit so will treat it so it doesn't get infected😍#westerngrey#joey#macropod#wildanimal#aussieanimal#nativeanimal#bushanimal#wildlifecarer#wildliferescue#animalcarer#animalrescue#kangaroocarer#kangaroorescue#kalbarri#westernaustralia#kalbarrinationalpark#💙🏡

Macropod (kangaroo/wallaby) study. Not actually a Swamp Wallaby (Wallabia bicolor), but rather a male Rufous-bellied Pademelon (Thylogale billardierii) from Tassie. Mummified roadkill front foot, “hand”. •
