Today I am so happy to introduce you all to Tippy and family.
You may remember the first time you met the little one..
All feet and very much still mainly in mum’s protective pouch.
Well Tippy is out and about and a very confidant youngster too…I believe Tippy is a little girl..she has been straying quite far from mum and really enjoying the world she calls home.
Now her dad..well let me introduce Buster..
Now mum (who is tiny so I have called her titch) appears to be trying her hardest this afternoon to ward of Busters advances…yes love is in the air folks…
In this picture you can see Buster grab her tail.. he had been sniffing her in a most invasive way.. and she kept moving away, then he would grab her tail…
Male roos are not aggressive when they are courting their girls and believe me SHE calls the shots.. and so after watching him as the family went around the front of the property I decided that since he was so desperate to bust a move on her that I named him Buster.
He is a seemingly young male..and judging by his huge tail in proportion to the rest of him..he may end up a Boomer or Alpha roo.. he is, I think going to be a big big boy when fully grown.
Titch may need to watch herself 😉
As you can see her chest appears wet..it was 38C today and she may have been rubbing her chest with her arms..roos cool down by licking their arms and the blood vessels close to the skin act as cooling.Eastern Greys have insulating fur all year around as opposed to red roos who tend to live in much much hotter climates.
This little family was so sweet to watch…mum trying to eat..dad trying to get romantic with mum and bub just wanting to take the world in..
And Tippy will be safe knowing her dad is always there…look at how she looks at him..such a powerful creature and she has no fear..
Hoping you all find some fun and beauty today to soak in..
