Cute Kangaroo PhotosWell, now. I started off with a clever idea. Then a quizzy idea. Then a photoessay idea. And then in the end I realised that the important thing, the part you all want to see when it comes to my liaisons in the long wet grass that surrounds the Great Ocean Road are the kangaroos. The cute kangaroos. The photos of the cute kangaroos.

So, bah, here you are. I give you a day off reading and me a day off writing (only kidding, could I do that?) and I forgo all other pretences and just leave you with:

Actually, close up they’re not that cute. The guys in particular are a bit muscly and mean and make a slightly spine-tingling throaty grunty noise. It’s like Jurassic Park meets Roger Rabbit. Anyway, at that point I beat a hasty retreat…

…,I wonder if my Shetland Sheepdog would be a good ROO herding dog ?

Those kangaroos are SOOOO cute that I am now “looking” for a reason to adopt a couple (maybe more !)

Thanks for the delightful photographs.

    I’m not sure if they can be herded or not. The little ones are quite skittish – but that big guy? I’d be concerned about the dog!

Okay, even though that one is a bit gnarly looking, most of them are still pretty cute. Even cuddly, you might say…

    Definitely the little ones. And wallabies too…But that big guy?! I beat a hasty retreat…

I’m voting for cute. It is strange seeing them close up for the first time – I agree. Particularly when there is a random leg sticking out of the pouch of the mother. Not what we’re used to seeing, but that’s the fun of travel, right?
