Kangaroos at Buchan
Photographed Buchan Caves Reserve,
Here’s another tale.
We had a wonderful holiday at Buchan Caves Reserve a couple of years ago. I had this camera only a couple of weeks when I took this pic.
One evening we were enjoying jaffles and toasted marshmellows around the campfire and there was the usual array of animals around mainly birds, but a couple of kangaroos as well….all hoping for the usual tidbits from the general public. Of course, we know you are not meant to feed the animals but telling a four year old that is not so easy, and letting them know that lollies are definately a no-no is even more difficult and so we were all horrified when we saw one of the marshmellows in the kangaroos mouth.
Well to cut a long story short, giving a kangaroo a marshmellow is like giving it chewing gum and we were even more horrified as we saw it trying and trying to eat the sticky mess which just didn’t seem to go away.
Sometimes lessons best learn’t are for life. I don’t think our four year old will ever give an animal a tid bit ever again and we have a very humourous memory of that dear kangaroo trying to chew its new found treat.
