Joey[edit]

Is a young wallaby called a "joey"?

Seeing as how im aliased after a wallaby, i'll answer this! ... All Macropods' (Kangaroos and of the like) young are called Joeys. --Wallaby 10:40, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Diet[edit]

It would be useful if someone would add information about what wallabies eat. JamesMLane t c 08:15, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

The link below says that they are herbivores, eating mostly leaves and grass, though some species of wallabies and kangaroos eat fruit, seeds and fungi. RamseyPalace (talk) 11:18, 9 April 2009 (UTC) http://animals.jrank.org/pages/2695/Wallabies-Kangaroos-Macropodidae.html

Height & weight[edit]

How big are they?

They're about yea big. Give or take. lol Actually, I'm wondering that myself.(PowerGamer6 17:43, 13 April 2006 (UTC))

I'm no expert in this, but from the wallabies that I've seen/met/touched, they're about 40 cm, more or less. So it's considerably smaller than kangaroo. (LittleWhisky 09:42, 27 October 2007 (UTC))

Antibiotic[edit]

Someone should add info about the wallaby milk containing a strong antibiotic —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 216.230.150.5 (talkcontribs) .

Why don't you add it, if you have a good reference that says it is so. - UtherSRG (talk) 13:59, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Species[edit]

yea, all these species are great, but which ones are the domesticated ones, and the wild ones and where? I'm doing a project... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.56.117.72 (talkcontribs) .

As far as I know, there are no domesticated wallabies. All are wild. --liquidGhoul 02:15, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Albino Wallaby Picture[edit]

This marvelous creauture is an Albino Wallaby who lives in Woburn Safari Park with some Rheas and also some Red Necked Wallaby. Next to them live some Squirrel Monkeys. I have put this picture so people: 1.Can see my work. 2.So people can see this magnifivent creature. 3.To make this page look more beautiful. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Barbary lion (talkcontribs) 07:47, 23 February 2007 (UTC).

And I'v removed it because it is fuzzy. Please do not upload fuzzy images. Please do not place images at the top of articles in this manner. - UtherSRG (talk) 10:55, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Multiple wallabies[edit]

What is the term for a group of wallabies? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dbgrabill (talkcontribs).

Apparently, it's a mob according to www.crystalinks.com/kangaroos.html, but I can't access that site from work. - UtherSRG (talk) 13:22, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
According to Dictionary.com, any group or flock of animals in Australia is a mob. - UtherSRG (talk) 13:26, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Recent Vandlism[edit]

I have seen alot of recent vandlism to Wallaby and I suggest to semi-protect it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Drestros power (talkcontribs) 18:49, 9 May 2007 (UTC).


And there's been some not so recent vandalism. The entire page was blank a few months ago. Plus, someone took out the size approximations. So I second this call to protect the page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.146.7.109 (talk) 08:40, August 24, 2007 (UTC)

Conservation Status[edit]

Any ideas, guys? (LittleWhisky 09:46, 27 October 2007 (UTC))

Species get conservation status. Higher order groupings do not. - UtherSRG (talk) 13:39, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Removal of trivia section[edit]

Can't we move the trivia item (it's not even trivia) to a headying with the rocko's item and put the heading as wallaby's in media or something like that but makes sense.

Stoned wallabies and cropped circles[edit]

Australian government official reported wallabies entering poppy fields are creating crop circles as they hop around "high as a kite" after eating opium poppies.[1] Peanutmuachi (talk) 13:07, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

  1. ^ BBC 25 June 2009, 'Stoned wallabies make crop circles'.

Taxobox[edit]

There was a {{taxobox}} in this article, however 'wallaby' is a common name that does not refer to a single taxon. cygnis insignis 18:05, 1 October 2009 (UTC) y —Preceding unsigned comment added by 200.56.169.72 (talk) 04:02, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
