Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby, Monarto Zoo, South Australia
Yellow-footed Rock Wallabies are one of the more colourful species of wallabies that are found in Australia. Once widespread in South Australia, Queensland and NSW its stronghold is now mainly in South Australia. It is a threatened species but with breeding programs like the one at Monarto Zoo, they are making a comeback in places like the Flinders Ranges, the only place I have seen this species in their natural habitat.
The captive group on display at Monarto Zoo are easily seen and approached for photos – or even a pat or two.
