Belonging to the Macropodidae family, wallabies are generally classified as any macropod that is smaller than a kangaroo. However, wallabies are not a separate genetic group, and the term instead covers a broad category of different species, such as the agile wallaby and the rock wallaby.

  • Scientific Name:Family Macropodidae
  • Characteristics: Due to the broadness of the term, wallabies can come in many different shapes and sizes, ranging from 18 to 72 inches tall. Learn other interesting facts about wallabies with this scientifically accurate and hand painted figurine!

  • Product Description


    Wallabies are fairly common and naturally occurring across Australia and New Guinea, and many species have been introduced to other regions like New Zealand. They are threatened by both humans and feral animals like dogs, but classifying wallabies as overarchingly vulnerable or not is challenging due to the wide range of known and differing species.

    Present Status The Rufous Hare Wallaby (L agorchestes hirsutus ) is vulnerable. Parma Wallaby (Macropus parma) is listed as Near Threatened, as is the Brush Tailed Rock Wallaby (Petrogale penicillata) and the Yellow footed Rock Wallaby (Petrogale xanthopus). The Banded Hare Wallaby (Lagostrophus fasciatus) is endangered, as is the Bridled Nailtail Wallaby (Onychogalea fraenata), and the Proserpine Rock Wallaby (Petrogale persephone). The Eastern Hare wallaby (Lagorchestes leporides) is extinct, with the last known specimen collected in 1890. The Crescent Nailtail Wallaby (Onychogalea lunata) is also extinct, possibly since the 1950's. In all cases, the major threats were from introduced species that preyed on the wallabies or altered their environments.
