MY WORLD ~ Albino Kangaroos

I have been wanting to post these pictures for a while, our
kangaroos look much prettier than Hugh Hefner's bunnies

and would be ever so useful at Easter time with their deep pockets.

We have watched them increase over many years until there is a
whole mob of them now. Unfortunately, people being what they are,
the kangaroos have to live in potective custody. The fence hardly
enhances photography being 6' high with mesh that obstructs the lens.

Thanks to all at MY WORLD who facilitate this meme and keep it going
week after week.

  2. Interesting that you should compare them with rabbits. We have many jack rabbits in our area, eating the garden and hopping up the hill sides. When I see them I say "there go the kangaroos!"

  5. They look gorgeous, I don't think I've ever seen a white kangaroo before. Are they true albinos or a white colour morph?

  9. At least being enclosed, they are safe, but I understand that is certainly not an ideal situation. They are quite lovely creatures though and that they are creating more from their own, pretty neat~


    By the way, I recently entered tons more on my other blog, thought of you and your sweet prompting~

  16. There are albino variety for each species is it? I am seeing the kangaroo variety for the first time. The mesh is a hindrance, but they still are great captures.

  18. Arija: I never thought about albino kangaroos, those are neat.

  19. A whole herd of white Kangaroos, wow I have never seen a white one. They sort of are kind of like giant rabbits but much nicer.
    We didn't see any kangaroo while in Australia this time.

  25. Wow, they really do like like giant jack rabbits, maybe with smallish ears. Too bad they have to stay enclosed for protection.

  26. they look like grown up rabbits. lovely photos.

  27. They are beautiful. I guess they are an aberration and quite rare, like the White Lions of Timbavati.

  28. they really are lovely ... especiallly the last one on the extra picture looks so human, standing behinde the fence ... it is a shame it cannot live in freedom or at least in a park without fence ... they were there sooner, but have less rights! sorry they have no lobby, union or any party caring for their interests ...
    greetings to you and the kangaroos!
