- ‘The banded hare wallaby was once common over the semi-arid regions of southern Western Australia.’
- ‘Banded hare wallabies currently live on uninhabited islands, so they have little interaction with humans.’
- ‘When a rufous hare wallaby is disturbed in the burrow, it will jump out quickly and try to escape.’
- ‘In the wild, the spectacled hare wallaby lives off grasses, herb foliage, fruit and seeds.’
