Young mulga barked by rabbit

Successive episodes of barking by rabbits can be seen on the lower part of the stem of this immature mulga (Acacia aneura), in the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park, South Australia. The bark grows back over the chewed and scarred tissue, only for the new bark to be eaten during the next rabbit plague.
