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.

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
