Winter kangaroo

I'm sure you have a mental image of kangaroos lazing in the shade of a tree in the hot Australian summer sun. Not always the case.

    1. Cro, maybe the mother would have experienced a couple of times in her life. Rather depends where this clip was taken.

  4. That video of the mom and her baby kangaroo is so cute. Loved it. And I hope you got your plumbing fixed. Nothing worse than having no hot water.

    1. Not mine Steve. It snows in the mountains here. There are alpine villages with chairlifts, skiing and nightlife. All closed in Victoria this year.

  7. And some kangaroos see/endure conditions like this every winter.
    Great (albeit chilly) shots.

    1. EC, they are well adapted to our climate. They have been here a very long time.

  8. Oh poor baby. Looks like her Joey was trying to get back in the pouch!
    Snow in Oz. Who would have thought?
    Although we had a water spout in my neck of the woods. Highly unusual!

    1. Maribeth, I am sure it would be so cozy in the pouch. A water spout, sucked up water. Interesting.

  9. Joey has the right idea, trying to hide under mum from the alien white stuff.

    1. River, I wonder if he/she is too big for the pouch.

  10. Somehow I missed this post.
    Oh the poor things, forgot about our animals in sleet and snow weather.

    1. Margaret, they seem to deal with such weather well enough. I guess it may kill off some old animals. Such is nature.
