    Smile A bit more of Australian wild life!!!

    Some time ago my son had an accident as a kangaroo jumped on the road at night. He couldn't miss it and went in search of it to have a look if something could be done for the poor thing but it was dead but he was able to retrieve the joey the mother had in her pouch. We kept it very warm over night and then took it around to the wildlife carers in the morning and they were able to raise it. They do a wonderful job as those animals need so much care and lots of warmth while they are growing up.
    It just breaks my heart when I run over some animal, mainly at night, but they just come out of nowhere and you can't avoid them, you can only be thankful you don't have a major crash.

    It is so amazing that a creature so little will grow into an animal so large. I live in a suburb out of NYC, so we don't have much wildlife.
    Thanks for sharing

    That happens a lot with deer during mating season - all of a sudden you have deer right in front of you and you are slamming on your brakes.
    It was very nice of your son to take the joey. Hope it survives.

    We have deer around us and sometimes they just show up in front of you. Glad the baby could be saved.

    What a thoughtful young man to see if he could tend to the kangaroo. We have deer that can come out of nowhere into the road, too. It's amazing that something so young can be saved - we give special thanks to our rescue groups everywhere that do such good work. And thank you for sharing your photo.
