A bank bordering indigenous forest and a paddock has proved to be a feeding site of this samango troop in Dargle. In the video below, captured by one of our trail cameras, an adult female and three juveniles feed on yellow flowers: Senecio harveianus  .

About fifty meters away lies another paddock where we’ve witnessed this samango troop catching grasshoppers and eating other yellow flowers – in this case, dandelions.
