Agile Wallaby

Macropus agilis

By far the most common wallaby in the Greenhill / Notch Point area of Central Queensland.

Unfortunately, these guys show the common trait of a lot of the Kangaroo/Wallaby family in that they have no road sense (in fact, it's probably negative road sense as they will stare at an oncoming vehicle and then at the last minute jump across in front of it).

    I think our equivalent of kangaroos and wallaby's would be the armadillo. Along the highways, it's more common to see them dead than alive. But, at least these guys are nicer to look at alive.

    Though, technically 'possums are more closely "related", being fellow marsupials.

    I think you have his attention Dave :-)
    (I nearly hit a roo / wallaby on The Gateway Motorway about 2.30am Sunday - on our way home from Dicky. Did the big swerve & lucky for me he stayed still in the middle of the lane)
