Kangaroo Moon

I took this photo of a kangaroo enjoying a cool Autumn evening against the backdrop of a wintry moon. I'd spent the previous 15 minutes laying with her, in my version of kangaroo rapture, just petting her softly.

Ooh, interesting, I didn't know roos would allow you to pet them.

Yay, though! That sounds wonderful. ^^

If this doesn't convince everyone out there that kangaroos are the most beautiful animals in the world, I don't know what will!

I have done that my self quite a few times.

Kangaroo's can be really affectionate when they want to.

I have been groomed many times by some of mine over the years as well.

I looked at the full size image on Flickr and was impressed by how thick this 'roo's fur is. Do they grow a longer coat during the cooler months?

Yes Kangaroo's do get thicker fur over the winter months.

There is also the summer moult to contend with as they shed the extra when it get warmer.

rainhopperroo: we love cuddles!

Kangaroos are Like rock stars! We love attention. We are about as friendly as wild animals come just short of domestic. Dont want to catch us with our fur in a bunch but for the most part aside from a few loopy tykes and some crazy kin folk noone sends christmas cards to, you can easily get a moment with a kanga.

As long as you dont try to rush the stage (we got crazy fans!) you can walk up to us when were done with what were doin and say ello. Ya might get a hug and an autograph of sorts!
