Wallabies are small or mid-sized marsupial belonging to the kangaroo family. They have powerful hind legs and a strong tail mostly used for balance and support. The female wallaby has a pouch on her tummy in which to raise her young. She gives birth to a single baby known as a joey, whereby it crawls up into its mother’s pouch.
