The wallaby population is growing rapidly in New Zealand. New Zealand has six species of wallaby -- the Black Tail or Swamp, Dama or Tammer, White throated, Bush-tailed, Black Striped and the larger wallaby -- Bennett's wallaby. Of these the Dama wallaby around Lake Tarawera and the Bennett's wallaby in the South Island are the most numerous and are considered real pests. Wallabies feed on young plants and saplings which threatens the regeneration of native forests. They also compete with livestock by consuming valuable pasture. One adult Bennett's Wallaby can eat as much as one sheep.
Wallabies are marsupials, carrying their young (known as Joey's) in their pouch. They are mostly nocturnal animals in the wild, but they do forage and catch some sun during the day.
