Joey – the final update

In January, I wrote about a little Red-necked Wallaby, One day I’ll jump for joy

This is a story in pictures of the little Joeys growth since we first saw him. I am guessing a him but I don’t really have any idea if the Joey is female or male.
Still not much hair but hanging out of the pouch a bit morered necked wallaby_joey01_garden_durranbah
The pink skin is slowly being covered. Same hang about attitude though.red necked wallaby_joey02_garden_durranbah
Getting bigger and bolderred necked wallaby_joey03_garden_durranbah
More fur and still likes to hang aboutred necked wallaby_joey04_garden_durranbah
Almost completely covered in fur and is curious about the ground and food.red necked wallaby_joey05_garden_durranbah
and just like that, out of the pouchred necked wallaby_joey06_garden_durranbah
Still likes to hang close to Mum. Sometimes has a bit of a play. Jumping up at Mum’s head Β  or grabbing on to her neck.red necked wallaby_joey07_garden_durranbah
Learning how to scratch that itch with those huge feet.red necked wallaby_joey08_garden_durranbah
and with that it’s time to follow Mum into the bushred necked wallaby_joey09_garden_durranbah

This morning I thought I would get a video of Joey in the garden. This is taken through the kitchen window. My video skills need improving and I tried to use an editing suite but failed. The Wallaby in the foreground isn’t Joeys Mum. Joeys Mum is behind the Grevillea. Enjoy a very fast wallaby zooming around the garden

    1. He tries to get in. When danger threatens it is comical to see him stick just his head into the pouch. He will just have to keep up but willikers he is fast πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
