The wallabaloo (wa-la-ba-lu) is a small, short-legged quadruped mammal native to tropical rainforests. Usually around one to two feet long, equipped with sharp nails and a small tail, wallabaloos have distinct coloring, such as shades of yellow, purple, blue, and brown, which helps them live in their habitat. At times, wallabaloos will be green because of the co-dominate coloring genes of yellow and blue. These mammals are herbivores and eat anything from leaves to fruit. Wallabaloos tend to be calm, social, and energetic but can become very territorial and angry when they feel threatened or bored.
First discovered in the forests of Brazil, the wallabaloo looks like a cross between a wombat and squirrel, leading scientists to believe that the wallabaloo descended from the Marsuialia family. However, scientists are still confused why, when kept in captivity, wallabaloos are able to ferment grapes and thus become drunk, like elephants. Also, after a study done by the University of Lampton, wallabaloos feel the same effects of drugs that humans do, but only stronger.
Though they look cute and cuddly, wallabaloos are not meant to be pets. Even though they are small, wallabaloos need a lot of space to run and breed. Sadly, a woman in Florida figured this the hard way when her wallabaloo, named John, attacked her after a few months of living in her single-story house. In her interview with ABC 7 in 2010, the woman said she narrowly escaped John by hiding in her bathroom until he left. Authorities have not yet found John and believe he went back to his native home, since wallabaloos have a great sense of direction and can find their way back home easily.
