Bennett's (red-necked) wallaby

Bennetts wallaby tracks 1sq

Bennett's wallaby footprint (hind feet only).

The hindfeet-only prints like this are most common because wallabies move at speed by hopping on their hind legs only, landing on both hind feet together to make side-by-side prints (bi-pedal gait). These prints are usually made by the front part of the foot only and the print is two-pronged, made by the larger medial toe on the inside and the smaller peripheral toe on the outside.
