Specimen: M. rufogriseus
Forelimb:  Natural bone
Forelimb length: 46.0 cms
Diet: Herbivore
Origin: New Zealand
Overall features of the skeleton show a small head relative to lengths of limb and tail, and it is surprising to find the forelimbs being very long, with most of the length found in the long forearm bones, which are considerably more elongated than the humerus. Forelimbs are used by Wallaby in their crawling gait, holding food, opening and cleaning the pouch also for sparing between individuals. Clavicle bone not always available.
