Not a zoologist... so Ushaprabha ji is right must wait for an
expert...

but in the meantime.. I'll take a wild guess... its a * Wallaby
* ... related to kangaroo, . face, ears, over size all different...

ps Dr. Raman ... dont know if you have a zoo in your neck of the
woods, but both Sandiego and Bronx zoo have a few... and now Tampa
Lowry park just got permission form Australian govt..(some new
International treaty makes it mandatory to get permission from native
country ) to host and display wallbies they acquired for scientific
genetic research !!!

Thanks for the information, Usha di.
Yes, you are right....Wiki also says that typical Wallaby is closely related to kangaroo, and belongs to family Macropodidae... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallaby
[I have been only to Memphis zoo and didn't find this one there]
