The female Palma Wallaby can become pregnant again just 2 days after giving birth. She can also produce 2 different types of milk to meet the nutritional needs of a new born Joey and a Joey that has left the pouch but is still feeding.
The Parma Wallaby (Macropus parma) was thought to have become extinct until it's rediscovery in 1965.
It is the smallest of the Marcropus family, the largest being the Red Kangaroo, which is 10 times the weight of the Parma Wallaby.
Like the Kangaroo, the female Parma Wallaby has a pouch in which she rears and cares for her young for the first 5 or 6 months of their lives.
