  • A picnic ground within Grampians National Park, Australia. I can't think of any place where wild kangaroos will come as close to human beings.

  • Kangaroo Island, South Australia. I had one take a can of orange mineral water out of my hand there.

  • Please don't feed the animals!

    Actually some kangaroos are so big and powerful it's advisable not to get too close. Besides, parma wallabies are much softer :-)

  • I didn't! Like I said, it just came up and took the thing. (There wasn't that much left in the can.) I didn't go after him and I didn't try to feed him.

    This was at a park. The kangaroos--actually in this case a wallaby--were wild, but the kind of wild you find in squirrels and pigeons that live in cities. That is, not pets, but not that afraid either. They know humans = food.

  • Unfortunately the sand monitors at places like Litchfield National Park have learned the same thing. Make a noise like a sausage and they'll be all over you.

    November 26, 2007

  • Yeah. I heard the same thing about jawas.

    Fortunately I almost never make a noise like a sausage.

    November 26, 2007

  • Do sausages sound different in Australia?

    November 27, 2007

  • American sausage: "..."

    Australian sausage: "..., mate."

    November 27, 2007

  • Hehe :-)
