One On One With Kangaroos

Saturday was reserved for kangaroos and koalas at Lone Pine. It is 12km from Brisbane on the outskirts of Queensland. Kangaroos are usually not aggressive towards humans but they can kick and scratch… well I got the impression that they only jump when absolutely needed, otherwise they prefer sun bathing. They are indigenous to Australia and, currently, there are probably more than 20 million of them here. Historically, they have been a source of food and there are still packages of meat seen in supermarkets today. Kangaroo meat is high in protein and low in fat (only 2 %), also exported to many countries around the world. Well, I will stop the meat writing right here since we have been cuddling wtih them the whole afternoon… No kangaroo meat for me.
