the kangaroo

My father wants to see the kangaroo.

Yesterday at Rhinebeck there was a mini zoo, the kind you see for children at these sorts of things. The cages mostly contained lemurs, but there was also a cage with a kangaroo. We only noticed it on the way out, and it was getting dark and hard to photograph. See? The kangaroo has a joey in its pocket. I don't think I've ever seen an actual joey in its mama's pocket, and it was fascinating. It would peek out and then go back inside, with only its knee sticking out. And then the mother would fish inside and try to pull it out all the way.

Very interesting.
