Tommy Kennedy
So, whatt will be the future for Joey,Wombat? Will he hang about your spread, become a pet, when he's capable of looking after himself or go off with other roos?
wombat
tommy they usually stick around ,especially when spoiled , but he can make up his own mind when ready biggrin.gif

http://www.dfat.gov.au/facts/kangaroos.html

Wee Jonny, my youngest G/son came home from school with above web address for roos. With Wombats pics and his 'show and tell' he has the whole class studying roos - he downloaded all 'Joey's' pics to disc for class computers.
He, like me and his class didn't know the babby roos were called Joeys.

So, Wombat, your 'Joey' has a class room of kids - mostly 10 year olds - all fans of Joey and wanting to 'follow' his life!!!

HOW JOEY WAS RESCUED

it was on the saturday of the ANZAC day long weekend ,wifie was out for her usual morning stroll but not as early as usual B cos of IDIOTS racing around and shooting the night B4 when she reached the top of our driveway our 3 little dogs who were ahead and on a wombat mound began barking so she went to look and found the joey in a hollow ,he had mud spattered on him ,dried out by the morning sun ,poor wee fella had been out all night as i remember hearing rain on the roof at 1am,it was 11 am when he was found,we think the idiots/neds drivin around the night B4 chasin roos around and shooting at them may have seperated joey and his mum from the rest of the MOB ,joey was weak in his hind legs and could barely stand so she picked him up and brought him home where it was warm and dry and he could be cleaned and fed .

more to come later biggrin.gif
Tommy Kennedy
Oh, good, Wombat, I'll pass it on to wee Jonny for his class-mates. They won't be happy to hear some having been shooting the roos -am I right to tell him it's illegal to shoot the roos where you are and in east Oz? - Was in the 50s
penny dainty
He is the cutest wee thing , that photo wi the flower made me go awwwwwwww wub.gif

Tommy Kennedy


Great pics, Wombat!
penny dainty
Really lovely pics of the wee Joey Wombat , so cute when they are small.It never ceases to amaze me when i see them roaming around the countryside , lovely beasties they are.
All to many of them fall prey to traffic on the roads unfortunately , you often see dead ones at the side of the road .like you see rabbits in the uk .
We went from NSW to Queensland via the New England Highway one year and i was apalled at the amount of roadkill there was.
I hope this wee joey has a long and fruitful life.
Thanks for the P.M Tommy.

Oh my goodness is this not the cutest little thing - wee Joey and the wee boy too.

Glad little Joey was rescued, I just think he is so cute, made my day to see this.

well done on the pictures Tommy and a wee round of applause to you and your lady Wombat for being so kind and caring to this little creature. xx
TeeHeeHee
Great thread you two (Wom & Tom)biggrin.gif
Interesting to watch Joey's development. No wonder wee Jonny loves it.
Power to your elbows, Mr and Mrs Wombat tongue.gif
Tommy Kennedy
Aye.....Thee, and wee Jonny 'mastered Photobucket' at first go - tho' he did post it twice - so he's cleverer than you as well rolleyes.gif
wombat
biggrin.gif will see if i can take a wee movie of joey and send to you tommy
Tommy Kennedy
Jonny, will like that.
penny dainty
Thats lovely you got Jonny to say thank , dead cute too.
Tommy Kennedy
Just thinking, Wombat: You should send some fotos of Joey to the Oz film board - there is great scope there for an 'Animated film' of the life of a an 'Orphaned roo' -suggesting that to them.
'Skippy -the Bush kangaroo' was a world wide success, even in U.S. and the Oz tourist board are looking for ways to publicse Oz.

Even better, Tommy, how aboot a thriller - "Joey Meets Crocodile Tommy". Wee Joey could be threatened by a rogue crocodile that's been stalkin Wombat's property, an you could be ower oan a visit. Ah can see it aw noo - poor wee Joey shakin wi fear as the croc slithers towards him, Wombat raises his rifle tae pot the croc an save wee Joey, but - he cannae shoot - he mebbe hit Joey by mistake. Crocodile Tommy strides manfully forward an says, "Leave it tae me, Wombat". A deadly hand tae hand combat ensues between man and croc. Close ups o wee Joey, panic stricken, an Wombat, staunin in open mouthed wonder, as you dispatch the croc wi wan deft flick o yer Swss Army knife. biggrin.gif
Tommy Kennedy
Naw, naw Benny, I've never taken advantage of any beast using a weapon - that's unfair - the trick with crocs is to leap over their gaping mouth, land on their back, with both hands grab and bend back their head still it snaps. It's a humane way to dispatch them tongue.gif
I will confess to using a knife when I've been shark fighting coz they're very slippy to get a hold of - the thing to remember with sharks - they only attack you if you're wet laugh.gif
