Our 8 month olde Bennett Wallaby LOVES swimming in our pool! When he decided to take a jump into our Koi pond on Father's Day, 2009 (4 weeks ago today), we realized we needed to make SURE he knew how to swim... which is GREAT, as he LOVES being in the water!

Wallabies in the wild WILL swim to escape a predator, or to cool off, but their bodies are not designed to swim for hours at a time. (Many humans cannot swim for too many minutes at a time, either!)

Since I taught my son Eric how to swim when he was 6 months old (he's now 30), and Anna - who will be 28 yrs old this week - how to swim at 2 weeks old... I felt very comfortable teaching Darwin how to swim!

FYI: Darwin is ALSO potty trained, and has been, since we first got him! I credit his amazing personality (quiet, loving and intelligent), to Debbie & Dan at Phoenix Herpetological Society... where we purchased him! For more information on PHS, you can go to their website: www.phoenixherp.com
or call Info/Hotline: 602-550-1090 Tours/Adoptions: 602-550-7029

Be aware that PHS only has a couple of Wallabies for sale each year, and they are VERY selective about who are allowed to purchase... because a Wallaby is a very special exotic pet. PHS also does education and research with schools, universities and hospitals.
