Spectacled Hare-Wallaby


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Boris is a resident Spectacled Hare-wallaby in the nocturnal house at The Territory Wildlife Park. He was found as a young joey near Borroloola in 2015, his mother having been killed by a car, and has lived at the Wildlife Park since. Spectacled Hare-wallabies are specially adapted to living in the hot dry open forests and grassland which cover much of northern Australia. They are entirely nocturnal, sheltering during the day in large tussocks of spinifex or similar and can derive all the moisture they need from the dry plant matter they eat.  Whilst not currently listed as Endangered, their numbers have declined due to predation by feral animals and  habitat alteration through changes in fire regimes and land use. Original Coloured Pencil artwork recreated as a premium quality print. Open Edition. Price includes Express Post within Australia and New Zealand.
