Dama wallaby

Dama wallaby tracks 8sq5

Dama wallaby tracks at slow speed.

The small forepaw prints can be seen between the much larger hind foot prints on each side. It is rare to see the fore paw prints as they are only made when dama wallabies move slowly – usually when feeding. At slow speed they take their weight on their hand-like forepaws and tail, and swing their hind feet forward. The tail marks are not evident in this photo.
