Dusty The Kangaroo is living the good life in Western Australia- he was adopted by a family there after he lost his mom :( and fits right in with the Stewart family’s assortment of puppehs. Read more about Dusty here, with thanks to Claire M.
Boy, those guys that want you to sign up for their dish packages are getting pushy these days.
Christmas season usually brings thoughts of kittehs and puppehs in stockings by the fire, or even..BEBEH REINDEER. We suggest this Bebeh Roo makes an excellent Aussie Alternative! “This face-meltingly cute video features the Kangaroos at Nashville Zoo, which are ridiculously adorable. Bonus: It’s seasonally appropriate!” -Lindsay C.
[*Total disclosure: The original headline for this post was VERY similar to what you see now, which was coined by the Nashville Zoo video guys. But their header is better. -Ed.]

Quoting Mail Online, “While working as a tour guide in the Northern Territory, he realised (British Spelling alert!) that people in remote areas of Australia were looking for a place to take orphaned or injured animals, so he opened The Baby Kangaroo Rescue Centre.”

Quoting ZB: “The Matschie’s Tree Kangaroo is indigenous to the rainforests of Papua New Guinea.”
“It is estimated that there are less than 2,500 tree kangaroos left in the wild, because of factors like habitat loss due to logging and mining, as well as hunting.” :(

A kangaroo’s dream come true!!!
In the 1950s, Mr. George Nissen, inventor of the trampoline, jumped on a trampoline with a kangaroo in Central Park, New York.
As a publicity stunt to introduce the trampoline, Nissen hired a kangaroo for a photoshoot in Central Park, New York. The stunt was a success. He started bouncing at one end of the trampoline to get the kangaroo bouncing at the other. Then Nissen timed his jumps so he and the kangaroo would be in mid-air together for the photos.
