The wallaby of Australia looks like a miniature kangaroo and costs around $1,000 to $2,000. This normally free-roaming animal will need a very large enclosure including a nest box filled with straw.
It even needs to suck an artificial teat as a substitute for its mother. Baby wallabies can live indoors, but the adults have to be housed at least partially outdoors in a large pen that can handle their high activity level.
Owners have to be pretty careful with the wallaby’s diet, given a host of potential jaw problems if it isn’t fed just the right food.
