Rock wallabies: nature's free runners
When wildlife programme maker Ted Oakes went to the Australian outback to film wallabies, he found one species highly adapted to hopping around the steep rocky outcrops where they live.
Ted Oakes was amazed to see wallabies high on the cliff sides.
The brush-tailed rock wallaby (petrogale penicillata) is classified as a near threatened species.
Chadden Hunter came across some more acrobatic jumpers living in the tree tops of the Amazon. Watch their aerial trapeze act in uakari: leap of faith.
