This was the first wallaby that I ever saw.  It was one of the first days that I was in Townsville on campus and I went for a morning hike at a nearby trail.  There were wallabies every so often, feeding in the long grasses before it got too hot.  I would often see them on my way back from my night class, as well, when it was reaching dusk.  Wallabies and kangaroos are both marsupials and are very similar, but their faces are slightly different and wallabies tend to be smaller than kangaroos.  In Townsville, wallabies are much more common than kangaroos, which is why I don’t think that I saw a true kangaroo until I began traveling toward the end of my trip.
