Kangaroos and Wallabies, and a short video

Location: Carnarvon Gorge, Central Qld.
 more Macrozamias in background ... and young kangaroos.  These were all a familiar sight each day when walking around the grounds of the Wilderness Lodges.



this one, the Whiptail Wallaby, also known as a Pretty-faced Wallaby 



eating the fleshy pulp from Macrozamia


Was hoping the little joey would check out for you

I think the dark wallaby in the video is a Swamp Wallaby, so you've actually got three species all on the lawn together - very impressive!

I love Pretty-faced Wallabies, I saw my first few just the other week.

Those cycads are grand! Looks like you spent the week in Jurassic Park :)

I didn't know there were so many different types of Wallaby's but they sure are cute.
