The Star Post

The Star Post

This kangaroo doing the star post for the camera. It's whole body and tail can be so nicely framed in the camera. What a joy to all photographers. After processing the photo, I find that its head looks like a skull. I mean it looks bony and seems fleshless.

Europeans have long regarded Kangaroos as strange animals. Early explorers described them as creatures that had heads like deer (without antlers), stood upright like men, and hopped like frogs. Combined with the two-headed appearance of a mother kangaroo, this led many back home to dismiss them as travellers' tales for quite some time.[citation needed]

Kangaroos have large, powerful hind legs, large feet adapted for leaping, a long muscular tail for balance, and a small head. Like all marsupials, female kangaroos have a pouch called a marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development.
