Food Shed

Food Shed

This wallaby was standing by its food shed. The way it stands and looking at the other direction makes it look really kind. My guess who it was looking at is my friend, Matthew. He was also shooting around the area with flash and this may have captured its attention.

A wallaby is any of about thirty species of macropod (Family Macropodidae). It is an informal designation generally used for any macropod that is smaller than a kangaroo or wallaroo that has not been given some other name.

Very small forest-dwelling wallabies are known as pademelons (genus Thylogale) and dorcopsises (genera Dorcopsis and Dorcopsulus). The name wallaby comes from the Eora Aboriginal tribe who were the original inhabitants of the Sydney area. Young wallabies are known as "joeys", like many other marsupials.
