While paging through my wife’s mammal ID guide the other day, I had quite a surprise when the very first image in the color plate section was of…a wallaby. Frowning, I closed the book to look at the cover again. Mamíferos de Portugal e Europa; okay, no, Australia is not included. Wallabies?
Of course I had to check the text and range map. It says (translated), “Population localized in the Peak District, English Midlands and, since 1975, near the Loch Lomond, Scotland.”
Wow. There are wild wallabies in the UK. I did not know that.
