Kangaroo at Caravan Park by Chris Chalk

Currently unavailable for purchase



When European explorers first saw these strange hopping animals they asked a native Australian (aboriginal) what they were called. He replied “kangaroo” meaning “I don’t understand” your question. The explorers thought this was the animal’s name. And that’s how the kangaroo got its name…….LOL

A male kangaroo is called a boomer
A female kangaroo is called a flyer
A baby kangaroo is called a joey

Exp – 1/60

Apt – F/4

F/L – 26mm
