Licking her Pouch

Whiptail wallaby

A female whiptail wallaby in readiness for cleaning her pouch. I found that many whiptail wallabies, both male and female, would sit like this with their tail stretched in front of them; but kangaroos generally don't, except when the female is preparing to give birth.

"Do you mind? This is a private moment."
