Fun Facts

  • Red-necked wallabies have acute hearing and poor eyesight.
  • Wallabies’ teeth grow like an elephant’s, with new molars pushing old ones out of the mouth eventually, and replacing them. During their lifetime they grow four sets of teeth.
  • When alarmed, like rabbits, wallabies stamp their feet for several bounds, as a warning to others of potential danger.
