Kangaroo Island Kangaroo

These furry marsupials, a sub-species of the Western Gray Kangaroo, are native to Kangaroo Island in South Australia. A social species, they are relaxed, friendly and curious. They live in mobs with a dominant male as leader, and feast on hay, mixed grains, carrots, and bark on leafy branches.

Wombat

Wombat are an Australian native found in cooler states of Australia. This sturdy and solitary animal has short, strong legs and thick fur. Their front feet have bear-like claws used for digging burrows. Common Wombat noses are shiny black and furless, unlike their hairy-nosed relatives.
