WAM M11599 - Short-eared Rock-wallaby (Skull)3D Model
The Short-Eared Rock-Wallaby (Petrogale brachyotis brachyotis) is a social animal, often feeding in groups on grasses and shrubs in its habitat. It lives in the far north regions of the country preffering a habitat of monsoonal rainforests and open grasslands. Like other Rock-Wallabies, they prefer areas with shelter such as cliffs, hills and rock faces that can provide refuge from the heat of the day. Currently, they are listed as Least Concern but more research into the size of its population is needed.
