Red necked wallaby

Red necked wallabyThe Red-necked Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus), being one of the largest wallabies, can easily be mistaken for a kangaroo... The Red-necked Wallaby does things on its own, although it operates in loose groups, known as mobs, and often sharing common feeding areas. They feed in the night and in the late afternoon, they graze on grass and herbs close to forest for shelter.
