Bennett's Wallaby at the Artis Royal Zoo (also known as Natura Artis Magistra), Amsterdam (Holland)

The Bennett's Wallaby or Red-Necked Wallaby is a medium-sized macropod marsupial (wallaby), common in the more temperate and fertile parts of eastern Australia, including Tasmania. Like kangaroos, the Bennett's Wallaby has hind limbs that are markedly larger and stronger than the forelimbs and their tails are long, thick and used as an aid for balancing. As do all macropods, the Bennett's Wallaby has a forward-opening pouch with four teats. The wallaby can be distinguished from the kangaroo by its' black nose and paws, and white stripe on the upper lip. It has reddish brown fur on the shoulders, a white chest and belly with grey fur on the remainder of the body. Bennett's Wallabies may live up to 9 years in the wild.
