In A Eucalyptus Wood

15 Nov

On this week’s hike we were lucky enough to see kangaroos in the wild and hopping with their little joey. And we saw one koala napping in a very high tree.

We woke him up.

      We got some great ones of a koala waking up sitting in the crotch of a high tree today. I talked to him and Dana snapped away. I will post the new ones at the end of this post.

      O.K. We’ll get a little joey and put him in our bag…carry-on of course. Maybe we can get him classified as an emotional support kangarroo and he can ride on my lap.

    OMG OMG OMG.. now THIS is what I have been waiting for. How fabulous! They don’t appear frightened of you. Do they make sounds, aside from boing, boing?

      We were walking on the Chambers Gully again with Margaret. She told us that she frequently sees kangaroos and koalas feeding early in the morning and at dusk. They have gotten used to people hiking by and are not skittish. The joey was so cute. He had a shorter hop than his mom and dad.

    Strange creatures, a cross between a deer, a rat and an ostrich?

      I think kagaroos are just their own animal, You can’t believe how great it is to see them hop (boing, boing, boing) in the wild.
