Petrogale mareeba (Mareeba Rock-Wallaby)

Status: least concern

Shot at Granite Gorge, where these guys are both numerous and friendly. It's bitter-sweet to see these beautiful animals so accustomed to human contact. It's sad that the food on offer has warped their natural behaviour, but it does make for excellent photo opportunities.

I didn't realise till I started looking at the photos here at home, how many ticks these guys had. It must be a constant torment for them.
