A conspicuous orange eye patch in the generally shaggy, white-grizzled, grey-brown coat gives this small member of the kangaroo family the name of spectacled hare wallaby.
It grazes by night, usually alone, on grasses and herbs, and hides in a burrow or thicket by day. After 29-31 days’ gestation, the single young stays in the pouch for 5 months and is weaned by 7 months.
