Welcome to our blog hop, home of ‘stuff’ which we are thankful for. We’ve had a 20 tonne Humpback Whale beached on one of our local beaches and after 36 hours of desperate and tireless work from the whale rescue team, headed by Sea World Veterinarians and watched by hundreds of people on the beach, THANKFULLY – THE WHALE IS FREE!
I’m always thankful that I get to hang out with so many beautiful animals each day, including prolific wildlife like our Kangaroos. The photo below is one of the many kangaroo nurseries, where wild mama-kangaroos and their babies hang out together and socialise.
The following photo is very rare: this is a tiny baby joey having a few bounces around, out of his mom’s pouch. By the time I grabbed my phone, he was ready to get back in (see photo below.) Babies like this are so cute and very funny. Their little legs are like springs which they haven’t learnt to control. This bubby bounced around and around his mom super fast, then stopped, and got back into bed.
Joey’s live in their mom’s pouch for one year, then spend another year at their mom’s feet and still continue to drink milk; so they need their mom for two years. Daughter kangaroos never leave their mother, but stay in the “mob” (or group) with their own offspring too.
What are you thankful for this week? Psssst:*whispers: have you noticed that thankfully I’m up to date with my comments lately? Hee! Hee!* I still recommend zooming from site to site and check out everyone’s posts. We have some really great pals and each pals’s story is unique. If you don’t feel like writing – just post a pic; but join in and share your week with us. It doesn’t even have to be animal related. *waves paw* :=o)
