The Swamp Wallaby is a small, brown marsupial that can be found in the swamps and wetlands of Eastern Australia.

They are shy and nocturnal creatures, and prefer to stay hidden among the reeds and grasses.

Swamp Wallabies eat a variety of plants, but prefer to feed on grasses, leaves, and flowers. They are also known to eat insects, frogs, and small mammals.

Swamp Wallabies give birth to their young in a pouch on their mothers’ chest. The babies remain in the pouch for about six months before being weaned.

Swamp Wallabies can live up to ten years in the wild.
