The sunsets at Serendip Park where we go on our Sunset Koalas and Kangaroos tour are stunning. Here is a mob of Eastern Grey Kangaroos grazing under the evening light #Kangaroo #Marcopusgiganteus #EasternGrey #Sunset #Melbourne #EchidnaWalkabout #SunsetKoalasandKangaroos #echidnawalkabout

How many roos? (Hint: check the pouches!)
Currently enjoying a weekend down the South Coast and these locals live a life of luxury on the golf course #kangaroos #jervisbay

“Training for the Title”

Kangaroo fights are fairly brutal; the bucks start training from a very young age. As joeys they spar, mostly using their arms to wrestle, with very little kicking, quickly learning moves and how to protect their eyes. If you watch a large mob of relaxed roos for long enough in the cooler part of day, you will most likely see a young couple start sparring. I once witnessed a young joey almost do a backflip, it was more like a side flip, it was very funny. I call my local golf club the boxing club, because when the grass is green, there are hundreds of kangaroos lazing around, taking advantage of the nitrogen rich grass, so sparring is common. They continue this playful behaviour throughout their adolesce until one day when they are big and brave enough (grow some balls) to take on the big daddy for the title of the mob, which entitles him to breeding rights.

"The Protective & Intimidating Father, The Cautious Mother & The Oblivious Joey".....Swipe left to see the mum and Joey, which will continue to occupy their mum's pouch until 11 months of age. Never get sick of watching these massive mobs of up to 100 individual kangaroos going about their business in the wild.

My little man Banjo is doing so well! He was orphaned a few weeks ago but is going strong. Like me, he wishes we were having more sunshine so he could sunbake ☀ .

"Meet Tilly"

This beautiful little girl has come into care after her mother was killed by a car.
She has really rallied with Yee's care, putting on weight and gaining strength. I love how she holds my hand at bottle time 😊#animalrescue #easterngrey #joeykangaroo #australiannativeanimals
Welcome little girl 💫 so lucky

Eastern Grey Squirrel 🐿(Sciurus carolinensis) with nesting material. 🌿 A SQUIRREL NEST TIMELINE
Squirrels usually nest by themselves. However, during the height of mating time, usually at the beginning of the calendar year, male and female squirrels will double up in a nest briefly for the purpose of mating. They may also share a nest to conserve body heat during the coldest stage of winter weather.
Once spring arrives, the female squirrels turn their focus to nursing and raising their new litters. Young squirrels venture outside of the nest beginning around the six-week-old mark. After the mother squirrel teaches her brood the rules of survival, most young squirrels leave the nest for good around 10 to 12 weeks of age. Some get extended training and will stay with Mom until the second litter arrives in late summer, usually in August.
Squirrel nest-building activity is often noticeable in June and July. That’s when mother squirrels are teaching their spring-born young how to build nests. But that isn’t the busy period! Not even close!
The real squirrel nest construction boom happens during the fall. While many wild birds and animals are migrating to avoid the colder winter months, squirrels are busy collecting material and assembling strong, secure nests that can make it through a blustery winter.
