Default Australia's Wild and ferocious animals

G'day all

Well in reality the photos show how wild & ferocious this lot are
We were visiting a farm outside Hervey Bay [of Fraser Island & whale-watching fame] in Queensland and this lot hopped thru the fences and settled themselves in for the day.

During the heat of the day they go to shady areas to keep cool, and come out from dusk to dawn as they graze on the grasses. The place we were staying at had a minimum of 50 roos and wallabies in sight every day we were there

1- Hello you - what you doin' on my patch?

exif = Fuji X-s1; 1/1000s x f5,6; 625mm hand-held; ISO-800

2- I'm going to ignore you and keep grazing

exif = Fuji X-s1; 1/250s x f5,6; 300mm hand-held; ISO-320

3- it's been such a hard day, I think that I'll just squat

exif = Fuji X-s1; 1/420s x f7,1; 625mm hand-held; ISO-400

As always, comments welcome
Phil

Cute looking guys you found there, though I hear they can be a little bit of trouble too. At least to the local farmers, as for tourist they only seem like fun.

G'day Cal

Thankx for your note
While the aussie population is about 22million people, we have an estimated 200million kangaroos whose population goes up & down with the seasons, droughts etc.

If they could be domesticated we maybe could farm them, but so far - no such luck

Looking at the face in the first picture, I can hear him saying "I'm to darn independent to listen to you".
