KANGAROO ATTACK111 by shiroin KANGAROO ATTACK111 by shiroin
first photo from my long and overly fulfilling austrailia trip:
just your average prick and a raging kangaroo.


so my elementary school classmate took me to a koala reserve which also had a small kangaroo park where u can literally touch and feed them.

i bought a bag of kangaroo food, but held it really high at this young kangaroo just to tease it. at one point it got really pissed off and started scratching me.

actually at first i thought it just liked me so was trying to hug me???


THEN IT JUMPED


I WAS LIKE SHIT WE NEED TO GTFO


so i packed my stuff and got the fuck out.


then i realized there was a warning sigh that you should not hold food up high.... my friend said "guess you are not the first prick tourist"


heh =p


critiques as usual for such a masterpiece

Definitely not the first. Australia was the first western country I went to, and I decided it would be a good idea to pet a wild kangaroo.
...it broke my jaw. 'orz
Those guys will fuck. your shit. up.

Feeling like fucking with our wildlife? That's fine, they'll just give it back!
But really, that was a dick move, just lucky it wasn't a adult. -.-

(If anyone is interested, it's a young Eastern Grey Kangaroo)

Hah, that's exactly what I thought! Definitely an idiotic idea to tease them =x. I, alone, was a bit scared getting close to them just to take photos. They're dirty, too =x.

Normally in Zoo's or parks where you get (the privilege) to interact with these Icons there are sings that say how you should act / feed them. They are there for a reason.
I've seen so much pathetic behavior from tourists and Aussies alike, but why something like this should be rewarded with a DD is beyond me. Granted it's good focus and perfect lightening, but there are so many more shots deserving that don't include the torment of the animal subject.

(They are just dusty as they often roll on the ground and have 'dust baths' but they are very soft)
