488 Garth Grant-Thomson Australian Double-header: Joey Wallaby Surveys the World from a Fur Cradle The kangaroo family has 50-odd members; some are called by other names: wallaroo, wallaby, euro, and pademelon. They range from the foot-long musky-rat kangaroo to 7-foot reds and great grays. Long thick tail serves as a stool for this pretty-face wallaby. As a pouch carrier, she is distantly related to the American opossum.
