On the side of the track.
Feeding at 1.45 p.m. on a bitterly cold afternoon, with a good plastering of rime ice over much of the scrub. Judging from this possum's behaviour, it had never seen a human, because it ignored me even though I was moving in full view about 20 metres away.
A Wallaby at Caversham Wildlife park but not sure what species
I realize this is right up there with some bigfoot photos, but we actually got brief but fantastic looks at this small rainforest-dwelling macropod before it leaped off the trail and disappeared into the thick foliage. I was able to get this one shot of its tail, thigh, and hind foot as it bounded off.
This distant herd of wallabies were resting under the shade of some eucalyptus trees during the heat of the day.
Subspecies M. r. robustus. The females of this shaggy-haired, normally nocturnal wallaroo are distinctly smaller and sandier colored than the males. This lone individual was seen among the boulders around Granite Gorge.
This uncommon wallaby is endemic to a very small area of eastern Queensland. However, they are relatively abundant and approachable in this park due to a public feeding program.
Found on a tour for birds and nocturnal mammals with Alan Gilanders, an excellent guide to the wildlife of the Atherton Tablelands region of northern Queensland. The Coppery Brushtail Possum is endemic to this small patch of high elevation rainforest.

The Diprotodontia (/daɪˌproʊtɵˈdɒnʃ(i)ə/; Greek: διπρωτός diprotos, meaning "two front" and οδοντος odontos meaning "teeth") are a large order of about 120 marsupial mammals including the kangaroos, wallabies, possums, koala, wombats, and many others. Extinct diprotodonts include the rhinoceros-sized Diprotodon, and Thylacoleo, the so-called "marsupial lion".
