Walking around this small seaside town you will find Roo_Poo everywhere on grassed areas.
These pictures were taken in the afternoon on a soccer field.
They are shy, so I had to keep my eyes on the ground and work my way around them walking soft and slow. Not that I am an animal expert.. :D
As you know, if you read Mallacoota_1, it was a 1300Km trip.
On the sides of the road were many, dead Roos from being hit by vehicles.
I didn't hit any, but narrowly missed two, and if you hit a big Roo, then you could perhaps totally wreck your car.

If you want to critique, that's ok.
Have fun;

To give some idea how many Kangaroos were on this field. I took this shot of some of them.
I would approximate about three times as many shown here.
The pictures of the parrots were taken as they were feeding in the field too.
Have fun;

Adorable. I regret I've never seen kangaroos in their native habitat. They are so cute, and so unique. I especially like the last one, where the joey seems like he's been rather carelessly crammed into his carseat by a mom in a hurry.

" joey seems like he's been rather carelessly crammed into his carseat by a mom in a hurry."
Must be like living inside a furry hot blanket. I noticed one Joey eating grass from inside his/her pouch. If you look at the pic with many Roos in it, you'll notice that they lean forward to eat, so no probs for the bub...

I have heard it said that mankind rose to the top because we invented the purse. Clearly we had no advantage over those soccer ball kicking Roos you have over there.

Ed, A very different world but the 'roos seem to be the Canada Geese of the southern hemisphere. For the poo factor, that is. Matt

Can't complain about the green grass. 90% of Aussie is drought stricken.
All water from my kitchen sink goes onto the garden and plants.

I've been fascinated with Roos ever since I can remember, their such interesting characters! S-
