Kangaroos


adrian miles and seth keen took us for a walk. we saw a "mob" of kangaroos. it was fascinating! they are like deer but they will totally kick your ass if you get too close. i could not stop staring, they are the coolest animals i've ever seen.

They are pretty cool those Kangaroos. Though, maybe there's something else going on too.

Robert said...

What a fun bushwalk. Excellent 'roo footage - they're such powerful animals!

Awesome! I miss those.

It's real. just some park in the suburbs by the river, they're wild and use the river as a green corridor to move up into more bush if they need to. I mountain bike there all the time and even locals are surprised there are so many 'roos so close to the city. Its pretty cool.

Kangaroos, like much wild life, have migrated into town environs because of the years of drought.
Kangaroos are certainly "cooler' than koalas I guess but give me a good platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) anyday or a goanna...

If Australia can shift from lamb and beef to kangaroo meat , we're ahead with climate change emissions.

Whoah.
Weird to see them in your videoblog.
I reckon that at some level, I don't think of them as real animals. They're like dinosaurs or unicorns.
And so this feels a little bit like a videoblog version of that scene from Jurassic Park.
