Joey the Kangaroo  by © Linda Callaghan

Kangaroos are one of Australia’s iconic animals. There are over 60 species of Kangaroo. Male Kangaroos are called bucks, females, does and young ones Joey. This is Joey!


Australia is my true home,
Where I live and like to roam.
With powerful legs I hop around,
in search of food along the ground.
I will let you pat my fur so grey,
I promise I will not hop away.

    Great, Linda. In U.K. there are places where wallabies roam free, although they are hard to spot, even when in plain view

  • here they are very easy to see….we have had a few visit us when we first moved in here….and they roam free at a lot of holiday destinations we have been at..thank you John :-)
