So disappointed this morning 😦 Where are my kangaroos? My big mob of roos? Maybe it was just a little chilly for them this morning. Every morning, on the school run, we drive past a big mob of roos. Probably about 40 or 50ish. I drive down the hill and off to the right is where they usually hang out. When the grass is long all I can see is their long ears poking out from the top of the grass, and then you get the odd kangaroo that pokes his head out to have a peek.
These photos were taken at or near my parents farm in Tasmania. Love Tassie so much.
Video of a beautiful little wombat, so cute!
I really love the flora and fauna of our country. Every time I visit my Mum and Dad I see something I haven’t seen before. The first time I went to Tassie I saw a wombat in the wild, I have never seen one before, and he was so amusing. I don’t think their eyesight is the best during the day, because we stopped our car along a dirt road when we saw him and he wandered down to the fence…noticed us and took off. He ran straight up the hill, I really didn’t know they could run so fast, it was hilarious and awesome. And the last time I visited (late last year) I saw a juevenile echidna waddle across the road. I’ve seen a few at the side of the road, sleeping, (YES THEY WERE SLEEPING! DENIAL IS NOT JUST A RIVER IN EGYPT), and it was a really great experience to see this little one on the move.
Just a short note…if you do come to visit Oz please don’t approach wild kangaroos…they get a little cranky, and they are all muscle, so don’t approach: emus (kicks, ouch) cassowaries, snakes (obviously) umm, probably any wild Australian animal really…or reptile or spider or anything in the ocean or um…you get what I mean…it sounds frightening but we seem to survive…mostly.
