Like a small kangaroo, the wallaroo is an Australian marsupial. It is naturally active at night and can react a bit aggressively if it feels threatened. However, if the wallaroo is raised by hand and socialized from an early age, the animal can bond with humans to become a friendly and cool pet.
Wallaroos need a lot of space and a fenced in yard. They can live up to 20 years old and males can weigh up to 78 pounds while females are about half the size. They are known to be very mischievous but can be taught the word “no”. They’re not only expensive (up to $4,000) but their upkeep is expensive as well with only their food costing between $200 and $400 a month.
