This is a “Wallaby”, one of 44 species loosely classified as “Wallaby”. A Wallaby is a small- or mid-sized macropod found in Australia and New Guinea. They belong to the same taxonomic family as kangaroos and sometimes the same genus, but kangaroos are specifically categorised into the six largest species of the family (Wikipedia). This particular one lives in South-East Queensland, not far from my home, in the David Fleay Wildlife Park. He was enjoying his vegetarian lunch, oblivious to (or just ignoring) me and my camera focussed on him.
