The Bennett’s wallaby is a Tasmanian subspecies of the Red-necked wallaby, a medium-sized kangaroo species.
The female has a pouch in which she raises her cub. The animals are twilight and nocturnal. During the day they hide in the shady vegetation. As a rule, kangaroos live tomboyish. Although they claim a territory that has a size of five to ten hectares, they are by no means classified as territorial. Nevertheless, even the formation of small groups can be observed. Natural enemies include the dingo and birds of prey. In their natural distribution areas, they are common and not endangered.
As with most kangaroo species, the hind legs are clearly longer and more powerful than the front legs, the tail is long and muscular.
An albino population of Bennett’s live on Bruny Island, an island southeast of Tasmania. The Hochwildschutzpark Hunsrück took over a one-year-old male albino Bennett in 2018, which quickly became a crowd-puller.
