Born at the River Colony in Kangaroo Valley in January 2019 to his mother, Wirra who came from a captive breeding facility, Ruben has been an integral part of the colony.
Ruben was a part of the male juvenile radio-tracking program in 2021 however unlike previous juveniles, Ruben decided to stay near the colony to challenge Barellan, his father. He is easily identifiable by a small notch in the top of his right ear.
