Unadorned Rock Wallaby, Petrogale inornata

The unadorned rock wallaby (Petrogale inornata) is a marsupial that can be found in Queensland, Australia, like other types of rock wallabies. Its range includes the northeastern areas of Rockhampton to the outskirts of Townsville. This range overlaps the small range of the Proserpine rock wallaby, which is in danger because of interbreeding. The unadorned rock wallaby prefers a habitat within coastal areas, and is scattered across its range. This wallaby is paler than other rock wallabies. Although it has been found in protected areas, more information is needed about its habit, distribution, and population numbers. The unadorned rock wallaby appears on the IUCN Red List with a conservation status of “Least Concern.”
