Confronting an itch

Confronting an itch WL237685

Macropods, including kangaroos and wallabies, are often considered animals that run gracefully and effortlessly. However, this perception may be because they spend most of their time either sleeping/resting or gently grazing. But if we take the time to settle down at ground level and remain still and quiet, we can observe a wide range of animated behaviours from these fascinating creatures. It's pretty entertaining to see these behaviours, and the attached picture displays a young male Western Grey Kangaroo dealing with something as fundamental as an itch!
