    Hey Catz! That was really fun to watch. Never seen a joey doing that before.

    Lots of Aussies have Kangaroos as pets and we like to take them swimming.

    cheers, Paul

    Do they wear tiny swim trunks?

    Is this meant to be a joke?

    In general keeping Kangaroos (or any native animals) is illegal in Australia, except under license. Licenses would normally be granted for the protection or orphaned young, and only the people who have received training in their care.

    More information here

    Yes John, it was a joke. (You should recognise Aussie humour when you see it!)

    Whether they're pets or not, it was fun to see them taking a dip. Or was that completely Photoshopped?

    I loved the shots, but it sure looked to me like a certain joey was wearing a collar at the end.

    As for stern lectures, play is play and the giggles sounded real enough, but where was their mother? The phenomenon of imprinting is certainly well known, but I'd hate to run into a mad as heck momma roo.

    Then we have conspiracy theories with not one, not two, but three (count 'em 3) baby roos. The House at Pooh Corner will never be the same.

    From my reading of the comments on You Tube, the joeys are orphans being kept as pets in Bussleton WA, until they grow up and are released back to the wild.

    Reading the comments is almost as bad as reading the instructions for software - it takes all the fun out of blowing up your computer. I can't even count tonight - that was two roos and one dog, if I'm not mistaken this time. Anyway, like all young they are almost irresistible, but I do worry about the welfare of all concerned as they grow up and have to adapt to the wild after having had so much human attention.

    Luckily the "wild" in Oz is fairly tame - the biggest threat is famine through drought.

    It is true that Australia lacks the traditional predators, such as lions, tigers etc, but we do have lots of the most successful predator of all.
