Wallaby – not a single biological group, a set of species, consisting of a number of genera, belonging to the family of kangaroo.

In the middle of ordinary (giant) kangaroo (род Macropus) There are around 8 species of wallaby. Reddish-gray wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) nimble and wallabies (Macropus agilis), because of the large size and overall similarity, often equate to the ordinary kangaroos and vallaru.

Alpine wallaby (род Petrogale), found throughout Australia and a number of adjacent islands, live in the mountains and rocky deserts. There are at least 15 Views, some of which are at risk of extinction.

The striped wallaby, hare (Lagostrophus fasciatus), is the last remaining kind of once-numerous subfamily Sthenurinae, previously inhabited throughout the territory Yu. Australia, and now occurs only on 2 islands off the west coast of Australia, free from predators.
