#AtoZChallenge2017 K for kangaroo

K is for kangaroo.

What does kangaroo remind you of?

Usually we would get reminded of a baby kangaroo in its mother's pouch. Or we would get reminded of Australia and Sydney Opera House and our long planned holiday to Australia yet to take effect.

When i was reading about kangaroos i read that the joeys urinate and defecate inside the mother's pouch. As I read in a Lifesciences Project "The lining of the pouch absorbs some of the mess, but occasionally the mother will need to clean it out, which she does by inserting her long snout into the pouch and using her tongue to remove the contents"....Hmm....Being a mother is never easy whether you are human or not!

Another interesting fact I learnt is that kangaroos can swim!!  I had no idea
