The Red-necked Wallaby, named after the red-brown fur on the crown, back of neck and mid shoulders of its otherwise grey body with white front
and black nose/feet, is native to Australia.
The nominal subspecies, also called Bennett's Wallaby, comes from Tasmania and is slightly smaller than the mainland two subspecies from south-eastern Australia.
Wallabies are marsupials, like their larger relatives Kangaroos. This means the female has a pouch on her belly in which the infant
(called a joey) can hide.
The black nose and feet. Red-necked Wallabies (Bennett's subspecies, above) have established small feral populations in the UK and France.
