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