rather large Eastern Grey Kangaroo was safely behind a fence when I took his photo
- until he jumped over it with no effort what-so-ever!
He is a wild roo living on our property who has been wooing one of our hand
raised Eastern Greys, Lilly.
We call him Bubba!
stated in many area's of Fourth Crossing Wildlife, I believe that keeping
most native animals as pets is not a good idea, for example: the kangaroo.
may recollect reading the following sentence in Short
A cute male kangaroo joey will also grow to be a strong and aggressive adult who
is an expert at "boxing", and you will lose the fight!
just look at the claws that cute joey could end up slicing you open with! Those
claws are designed to fight with, and the long claw on the middle toe of his foot
is even more dangerous - designed to gut open their opponent.
something for you to keep in mind!
