There were a couple of these guys in my front yard this morning, eating plants in our garden.
Wallabies are basically small kangaroos. Other differences are colour, diet and habitat.
You can see from this one that camouflage is one of their defences.

They are quite impressive in full flight(which they tend to do when chased by a 2 year old:headslap:), and unbelievably agile.

Any wild animal interests me Kat ... especially animals from a country other than Aussie.

You'd rather walk around in the dark would you? ;) Brave but it could be exciting to find things to shoot with your feet :)
