A closer look at the manicure


I know the image of Kangaroos is something like Skippy…whose vocalisations were rubbish and not at all a sound any roo has ever made..they chuff or stomp their feet…or cough…not tut tut tut sounds…
Anyway I digress…let’s study the manicure….this is quite blurry as the original was not crash hot and on blowing it up it is a bit fuzzy..however I think you will agree..these are some serious weapons they have…

    • Sharon I think the world fell in love with Skippy..but that was 9 roos made to chew gum or chocolate or even an elastic band around their lower jaws to make that sound..they are beautiful but in the wild they are a force to be reckoned with if you hassle them πŸ™‚ xx

    • Indeed..they won’t be a problem to us..they are shy creatures..but if Forrest jumped the yard fence to chase one and cornered it ..well it would kill him…they have drowned many many dogs when threatened and so since we have been here the dogs have been inside the house when we go out….(the snakes too and Forrest was bitten this year ) which means for nearly three years we have not gone out all day ever..so now we will feel much happier knowing the boys are safe…hugs to you Cinnamon and Linda (glad you are back πŸ™‚ ) Fozziemum xx

  1. This picture as well yesterday’s just blows my little piggy mind! There like ‘hands’. Amazing. If I had ‘hands’ like that, the possibilities would be endless here at the Hotel Thompson! I ❀ those roos! XOXO – Bacon

  2. Actually the more you look at them the more impressive the arsenal is with those claws. thumping feet and whacking tail. Would not like to be on the wrong side of one of those. Have a terrific Tuesday.

    • Hahaaaha they do..amazing animals and yes they can easily kill a dog or even a human if threatened…those legs go up they balance on their huge tails and then kick and rake down with their claws on their feet..which are just as big as the ones on their hands in this pic..and are capable of ripping open a dog or human..always I respect them and their space..and never allow them to feel like I am a threat..

    • They are well equipped indeed Layla..they can be quite brutal..and dogs end up victims quite often due to chasing and cornering them..they head to water they are great swimmers..but if a dog chase them in a damn they will drown it..hey also rip them to bits..hence why even on 11 acres we don’t allow the dogs to roam..they are on lead..unless playing with us..amazing creatures and due respect to them from me πŸ™‚

  3. At least it isn’t a single leg (probably with a beer opener on the end) extending from the side of the screen in jerky movements! That Skippy!

  4. Those paws are quite scary looking. Mom says they remind her of what they make the hands of old crones look like in movies. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Hahaahh yes they have some great claws..and the feet do too! they would hop off before I was a threat..the only time people are injured by them is when they corner them or feed them and try and tame them..in both cases I say they have it coming πŸ™‚ hugs Bev xx

  5. Wow, I never knew they had claws like that! I always pictured them as mild mannered creatures, but you wouldn’t want to mess with them, would you? I enjoyed the photos from the previous post of them scrapping as well.
