We saw seven adorable sleeping koalas and this one climbing and nibbling eucalyptus leaves in a Koala Park on Kangaroo Island. The man in charge said there were thousands on KI, and with virtually no predators, they had to sterilize some.
Wallabies tend to sleep under bushes during the day, so stay hidden until dusk. Kangaroos rest more in the open during the day, like these three that then bounced off into the bush.

Sadly, my best kangaroo photo!
Semi-wild on island.

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".
