Rock Wallaby Genus Petrogale
Rock Wallaby
The genus Petrogale in the family Macropodidae, is a group of of marsupials commonly known as rock wallabies.

These are our smaller herbivorous animals, that can often be seen moving with agile grace across steep rocky escarpments.

Rock Wallabies are no taller than half a metre, and it is their agility and speed as they travel across seemingly sheer cliff faces that amazes many people who are lucky to catch a glimpse of them in movement. When not moving, they blend almost perfectly into the rocky escarpment.

Their ability to traverse rock faces is down to their powerful spring-loaded hind legs, textured soles providing maximum traction, as well as their muscular tails for steering and stability.

This species of Rock Wallaby is genetically diverse, with at least four recognised races.
