Yellow-footed Rock Wallaby
Meet Bluey, one of four yellow-footed rock wallabies here at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo!
At 11 years old, Bluey is the oldest of the four female rock wallabies at Wallaby Cliffs and one of the original animals from when WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo opened in 2006. She can easily be identified by the blue tag in her ear and by her outgoing personality.
Like most wallabies, Bluey loves to sleep most of the day and is most active from around 2pm. Unlike the other wallabies, she loves to be hand fed by her keepers. She gets her favourite treat, corn, three times a week, along with a regular mixture of carrots, broccoli and sweet potato.
- Born 14 April 2003
- Exceedingly good climber, especially when Ringo is being boisterous!
- Loves to eat figs
The yellow-footed rock wallaby is the largest wallaby species and identifiable by the distinctive golden fur on its legs, ears and above the eyes. The species is under threat of extinction and only found in small populations in Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia.
