Monochrome Madness 2-7

Wallaby-monochrome-2

Last year whilst in South Wales (UK not NSW!), we visited Manor House Wildlife Park. It is a small zoo run with conservation as a high priority.  There are two types of wallaby kept there together in a walkthrough enclosure that enables you to get right up to them. “The Parma Wallaby was thought extinct, but a small group was rediscovered in the eucalyptus forests of New South Wales in 1965. Whilst not common, a breeding program to ensure the survival of the Parma Wallaby is in place.”  This one is, I think, a Bennet’s Wallaby. “With black paws and nose, and a white stripe on the upper lip, they are also known as the ‘Red-Neck Wallaby’. The Bennett’s Wallaby is common in Tasmania.”

    1. They’re very cute, aren’t they! These aren’t in the wild, but in a large enclosure, you can go right up to them. I think you’d need to go to Australia to see them in the wild though! 🙂
