The kangaroo is a recognisable symbol of Australia. The kangaroo and emu feature on the Australian coat of arms.

The word kangaroo derives from the Guugu Yimithirr word gangurru, referring to eastern grey kangaroos. The name was first recorded as “kanguru” on 12 July 1770 in an entry in the diary of Sir Joseph Banks. Source Kangaroo – Wikipedia

#Didyouknow Kangaroos belong to the Macropodidae family, meaning ‘big foot’ in Latin, in reference to the species’ unusually large hind feet!

Imagine what Rhonda was thinking as she captured this image? It’s not often you get to a photograph a big roo like this one, flexing their muscles no less!
