    I went here 2 months ago and was just wondering if the zootierlste list for these animals is correct. It says it has a Bennett kangaroo and I don't remember seeing one.

    First time posting links so apologise if it doesn't show up

    Bennett Kangaroo (by which I assume you mean Bennett's Tree Kangaroo) is not listed on ZTL for the current or former holdings of Tierpark Aachen.

    On their website it says something about a Bennets tree kangaroo that's why I was checking it

    Looking at their website the only macropod they claim to hold is the Red-necked Wallaby - which *is* listed on Zootierliste.

    "Bennett-kaenguru" would be a reasonable German name for Red-necked Wallaby.

    Bennett's Wallaby is of course an alternative name in English for Red-necked Wallaby.

    Is that always true? I assume when the subspecies is not known, the names are used interchangeably?

    they are all "red-necked wallabies". The name "Bennett's wallaby" is just for the Tasmanian subspecies though. I don't know specifics of the European population but I dare say they would all be Bennett's anyway.
