• Tammar Wallabies have an abundant and stable population.
• They are very social animals.
• A group of wallabies is called a "mob."
• Mobs have a hierarchical structure with males competing for dominance by aggressively wrestling. The victor of these wrestling matches becomes the highest-ranking individual in the mob.
• The range of a mob can cover up to 250 acres and is guarded against other mobs.
