I found some interesting info about this black wallaroo here.Your photo looks like having been taken at quite a big distance, but it's a very good document of what seems to be a rather confidential type of kangoroo. Even if this shot is not perfect, it's a really interesting addition to the wildlife gallery of TN. Thanks for sending.

Chris, I can appreciate your trials & tribulations to get this one. Not a zoo shot, this one is very noteworthy! Well done!
Very nice shot - I also enjoyed your interesting note a lot. I'm glad you managed to get close enough and take a shot eventually as just a couple of days ago I was trying to sneak closer to some squirrels and just gave up in 15 minutes with no luck = no picture. So it's good to know that some people have more patience (skills) and it's possible to get close enough to take a shot.
thanks for sharing,

Nice shot good pose even if the picture quality isn't really good. Good note.
He's a handsome critter.Almost looks like a giant rat,or possum.
You've captured him well...could possibly have zoomed out a bit,partly to get the tail in and partly to give clearer focus. (the more you zoom in,the more your little movements become blurs)
You're lucky to be able to go up to Arnheim land.There's some amazing country right up north there.Cheers for posting.

OK, this is a first for me. Good work and it seems to have been hard work as well capturing him.
Very well done and thanks for posting
