Mammals: Hair and Milk

Bennet’s Wallaby

Macropus rufogriseus

My name is “Samwise” because I have big hairy feet (The Hobbit). I am a wallaby which means I am a special kind of mammal (a marsupial like kangaroos). You may have noticed, I am also albino, which means I am even more special!

Let your parents know that I am a prey animal, and therefore, I am only allowed at indoor events. I do not mix well with dogs (their relatives, the dingo, try and eat me), balloons (predator attacks from above freak me out), and loud noises. Even without these reminders of my natural predators, sometimes I am too nervous to be touched. Hopefully the Party Safari staff can work with your parents to increase the likelihood of me being calm enough to attend your event.

Samwise is not guaranteed at all events due to distance and other factors.

Experience the unique!

Ask if Sam will be able to attend your event.
