Black-footed rock wallaby

black footed rock wallaby, Petrogale lateralis

Black-footed rock wallaby Petrogale lateralis IMG 5168 - This beautiful Australian native animal is an elusive creature, but patience rewarded the photographer who spotted this agile wallaby clambering across the rocks at Simpson's Gap. The rugged cliffs and gorges that surround the gap, which is in the West MacDonnell Ranges, are the habitat of rock wallabies that are perfectly adapted for survival in this harsh region in the Australian outback. The West MacDonnell Ranges lie within easy reach of the central Australian town of Alice Springs, and while many tourists visit the scenically stunning Simpson's Gap, only those who are quiet and who have plenty of patience are rewarded with an encounter with one of the gap's most spectacular residents.
