Artist's Description

Pretty Face Wallaby

Featured in Nature In Its Entirety – Nothing Man-Made

The “Whiptail” is commonly called the “Pretty Face” wallaby, because of its white cheek stripes that are very prominent against the almost black face, and makes it look very pretty.

It is named after its ‘whip’ of fur, which grows from the end of its very long tail. Not many people get to see this whip, as it does not develop until a male is about 6-7 years old. (I’m not sure whether the whip actually develops on the female’s tail).

But names can be deceiving, as although it is pretty, it is not the most endearing wallaby to anyone other than who raised it.

Whiptails are very social creatures, grazing in mobs of up to fifty, although they tend to group in numbers of ten to fifteen.

Carnarvon Gorge, Carnarvon National Park, Queensland.
