Bennett’s wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus rufogriseus) is a subspecies of the red-necked wallaby, a medium sized macropod (kangaroo-like) marsupial native to parts of Australia and New Zealand.
These skulls are roughly 12cm long and can be shipped outside of Canada.
Bennett’s wallabies are the red-necked wallaby’s Tasmanian cousins with a smaller frame and shaggier fur. Much like kangaroos, the hind legs are the strongest part of its body, an adaptation to moving quickly across flat terrain. They usually live in close proximity to humans and can often be found grazing on lawns in suburban areas of the island.
Bennett’s wallabies are omnivorous, with a diet consisting of small rodents and multiple types of vegetation. They typically weight between 6 and 23 kg (13 – 50 lbs) and are often hunted for their meat and fur or as part of anti-pest operations. Their natural predators include Tasmanian devils and eagles.
