It is called a Red-Necked Wallaby due to the reddish hair on the back of its neck and shoulders. The rest of the body is grey with a white chest and stomach. The baby remains in the female’s pouch for some 280 days. Wallabys use their tail as support. They are principally crepuscular.
Although their conservation status does not entail any threats, these animals have been hunted for their fur and pursued by farmers, who consider them to be a pest. The felling of trees has also reduced their numbers in some places.
