  1. 1. WALLABY! Sec 2N1 Leader: Rovin Denesse(13) Science Expert: Wei Rui(24) Maths Expert: Alvin(21) Humanities Expert: Azilah(5) Time Keeper: Andrew Lee(27)
  2. 2. ABOUT WALLABIES! - Wallabies are usually found in Australia - They are part of a group called „macropods‟ - Wallabies are smaller than Kangaroos - They often eat leaves of bushes and grass - They are active at night and rest during the day - They have strong back legs with long feet
  3. 3. Physics Aspects! - They are only able to move their legs independently while swimming - The top speed of the average wallaby is about 48 km/h - Just like the Kangaroos, they have large and strong tendons in their hind legs which act as “springs” - Wallabies do not run instead, they jump and bounce.
  4. 4. Biology Size Head and body length ranges from 11 to 91 in (290– 2,300 mm); tail length ranges from 6 to 43 in (150– 1,090 mm); weight from 3 to 187 lb (1.4–85 kg) Number of genera, species 11 genera; 62 species
  5. 5. Wallaby Reproduction - Breeding Season: January and February - Gestation: 28 Days - Young wallabies(Joeys) are born small, undeveloped and vulnerable. - As soon as they are born, they crawl into their mother‟s pouch and remain for 2 months - They continue to develop over the next 7 months
  6. 6. - If in danger, joeys return to their mother‟s pouch - Female wallabies can undergo embryonic diapause - The life span of a wallaby is 9 years in the wild
  7. 7. Values Aspects Brave When threatened or being attacked, Wallabies don’t Hesitate to fight back and use their legs for powerful kicks.
  8. 8. Values Aspects Caring When born, young wallabies crawl to their mother‟s pouch and stay there for about 2 months and the mother takes care of them while they develop
  9. 9. In times of conflict and war, to whom can we turn? ( What are some defense mechanisms the wallaby has to protect itself?) The wallaby uses its strong back legs and elongated hind feet to deliver powerful kicks to enemies and to defend themselves
  10. 10. How can we ensure Singapore‟s economic competitiveness? (How has the animal evolved or adapted itself to survive?) Wallabies use their strong hind legs as springs to be able to move in the wild, travel in long distances, and escape from predators.

  17. 17. Reflections Rovin Denesse(Leader) There were a lot of pressure in doing this project. As the leader, I tried my best to keep my members active in doing this project. We were able to finish the project in time and we also had fun during the process. Alvin(Maths Expert) Doing this project was fun and exciting. We enjoyed learning and researching on our animal. Azilah(Humanities Expert) I helped taking photos and was able to gather enough information but had trouble with managing time to do our presentation but we are still able to finish in time Wei Rui(Science Expert) I was in-charge in taking pictures during the Zoo trail. It was fun but challenging for the time was limited. Andrew(Time Keeper) It was so challenging for there were some problems along the way but we managed to finish our project on time.
