Koalas and Kangaroos!

So yesterday, I went to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, which was awesome.  It’s kind of like a zoo, but it’s a little more spread out, and some of the animals are given plenty of space to roam around.  Plus they are very friendly! Sadly, I was unable to fulfill my dream of getting a picture of a baby kangaroo peeking out of a mother kangaroo’s pouch, but I was able to see some cool stuff. Also, there is a 3 minute video at the end.

Check out the pictures, which you can click on for a better look:

Lastly, I made a video! If you ever wondered how a Kangaroo walks without hopping, now’s your chance to find out! You can see kangaroos walking and jumping around, two different koala bears stuffing their faces, and if you look closely, you can see a kangaroo poop right at the 1:19 mark. Also, you can see me petting a kangaroo and treating it like an infant. Enjoy.

  4. I’d say that the kangaroo felt more like a donkey, and the koala bear felt like a super obese cat. he might have looked cute, but he probably weighed about 40 pounds. all those things do is eat.
