Red-necked wallaby napping, Zie-Zoo, Netherlands
Zoo shot of a Red-necked wallaby, also called Bennett Wallaby, napping on an unusually hot day. Trivia, directly from the sign: this is one of two animals on the Australian coat of arms:
The other being the Emu. Both animals cannot walk backwards, which is the symbolism of a nation that seeks progress. I bet you did not know that.
The red-necked wallaby or Bennett's wallaby is a medium-sized macropod marsupial, common in the more temperate and fertile parts of eastern Australia, including Tasmania. Red-necked wallabies have been introduced to several other countries, including New Zealand, England, Scotland, Ireland, France and the Isle of Man.
