Black-footed rock-wallaby, Petrogale lateralis


Black-footed rock-wallabies live on rocky cliffs where they spend the day resting in the shadow of rock holes and come out at the end of the afternoon to feed. When they leave their hiding places, they move along the cliff, jumping from one rock to another. With the low sun at the end of afternoon, its shadow seems to jump too.
