DESCRIPTION

These beautiful small, grey wallabies have a tell-tail sign that they are the Red-necked wallaby- their red neck.

Red-necked Wallabies like the dense understory shrubs in Eucalyptus woodlands as a big part of their diet along with grasses and herbs.

The wallabies are mostly active at dusk and dawn though they do actively forage during the day. Though the they are mostly solitary, Red-necked wallabies do like to have others of their own species around them for company.

Young females usually stay within a close home range to their mothers, while the males are more likely to head out and establish their own home range.
