5 FACTS:

  1. Wallabies and kangaroos are macropods which means, "large footed" and are characterised by their hind legs and long tail
  2. A group of wallabies is called a mob
  3. Females wallabies have a pouch in which to carry their young, where the young wallabies (known as Joeys) will stay for at least 2 months after they are born
  4. Small colonies of Wallabies live wild in the North of England having escaped from collections in the 1930s
  5. In captivity, albino (white) wallabies are quite common, but in the wild they are as few as 1 in 10,000
