Parma wallaby Lolek & Bolek


Lolek & Bolek

Parma wallaby was considered to be extinct in the nature for some time. So, there were attempts to reintroduce the species to the wild again and breed a new population of wild animals, that were brought to New Zealand from zoos. 30 years ago, in east New South Wales, there were for the first time discovered wild living animals. Currently this kind doesn't have a big population numbers, but his survival seems to be ensured.

They live in the north-east New South Wales, in a narrow steak along the coast. They inhabit the eucalyptus forests with dense undergrowth, but they also need small glades.

Like most marsupials, female kangaroos have a pouch called a marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development.
Cubs as an undeveloped embryo climbs after birth into a marsupium with the help of its mother, where it spends about 8 months.

In the Slovak language, the correct name of kangaroo (also used in other languages) is derived from the word "ganguru" from the language of the original inhabitants, meaning gray or large kangaroo.
