    ^ yes but the joey in the pouch of the one on the left would be a good size for that. Pity it isn't sticking its head or feet out.

    Those Kangaroos are cool!!!!!!!

    Are they dangerous? They look ready to box!
    Do people hunt them? Eat them?

    Not quite wild "life" but wild dead

    found this at the beginning of the trail head this morning. Not a good sign. Didn't look for the rest of it for obvious reasons...

    It did make me ride a little faster!

    I know the feeling - we found a dead cow on our latest Black Canyon run (I'll spare everyone the photos). Not the stuff you see on gramma's trails

    The big males are dangerous because they will stand on their tale and gut you with the claws on their feet. Yes they do box, search u-tube for that sort of thing.

    As for hunting, yes people still hunt them, to the point where they are no longer seen walking down the main street of Sydney anymore but they can still be found in the outer suburbs. We have plenty of rock Wallabies on the trails near us but they are so scared they are very skittish and therefore hard to see. There is enough of a market for their meat that the major supermarkets now stock it in the meat dept. You can tell the ones that have survived bush fires because they always taste a little bit smoky

    I totally agree, those kangaroos are awesome. I could be wrong but maybe for the Aussies it is normal to see them and kind of like me seeing deer in the wild here in the states but if I saw kangaroos while riding I would be pretty darn awestruck.

    I know the area and although I haven't seen the burros out there I have seen wild horses out there. The desert is such an amazing place it's like it's lost in time.

    They ran for about 1/2 mile to meet me as I was riding. I don't know what they were expecting but they seemed disappointed when they got close.

    I went for a night ride last night. I only had my headlight because I can't find the battery for the handlebar flood light. Surprising deer like that is terrifying, especially when they don't move until you're 5 feet away.

    I got caught completely by surprise by this guy while out riding last March here in the Phoenix area. I rounded a corner and suddenly heard hissing and rattling right below my pedals. I thought I must have nearly run over a snake and stopped to take this picture, but, obviously, didn't want to get too close.

    I just got back from South Africa and I went mtb while I was over there. The rhinos were super cool but I wasn't going to risk getting too close to them.
