Tiding up

I played a bit with filters to try to make this a bit better...

    Me encanta esta imagen!
  • Pierre Pouliquin PRO 9y

    Thanks all, gracias.
  • Sandy Fernee 9y

    Very cute, she is probably mid process of 'toiletting' her joey by licking around joey's cloacca. (Sorry, photo probably less 'cute' now). Gotta keep the pouch clean somehow! Nice capture of this event.
  • Pierre Pouliquin PRO 9y

    :) yes probably, (or looking after herself?) thx for your visit, I suppose the joey was small, the pouch being not obviously "inhabited" from where I was...larger ones don't need so much attention.
  • *omnia* 9y

    pierre, you can tell there is a joey from the size of the pouch

    usually the joey is not visible, but a large bulge in the pouch is

    there may be up to 3 joeys in one time inside! if there is no joey, the pouch is not able to be distinguished
  • Pierre Pouliquin PRO 9y

    :) thx B (and others), yep they are so common there is possibility to no longer notice them...I stayed a bit observing some on red Hill last WE (nice to see their many attitudes).

    well, i learned kangaroos have cloaca's. i thought only birds, reptiles and amphibians had them ... definately strange animals
  • Katpix PRO 9y

    Priceless moment!
  • Julian Robinson PRO 9y

    Yes me too about the cloaca. Very strange.

    As for what it's doing, no more of this rubbish about joeys please -- clearly she's lost a credit card, key or maybe the lipstick. I've seen this frantic search many times, and the reason has never been joeys.

    Good shot Pierre!
  • Pierre Pouliquin PRO 9y

    eheh I knew about the cloaca (arriving here I bought....50c at a fair an old book on Australian fauna....with funny drawings of Echidna putting her egg in her pouch, among others).

    Sneezing politly?
