General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA and possibly elsewhere
Generally we don't get Wallabies in the Murray Mallee region. Those shown here were in a zoo.
It's possible we get these, but if so they'd be pretty rare; perhaps along the river where there is plenty of moisture. There are no records showing on Atlas and the 2010 survey shows them as Data Defficient.
We show Wallabies here to help differentiate them from other 'roos that we do get in the area. Helping people with their wildlife id's.
