How often do you see kangaroos in the wild?

I'm in Canberra, and we have an annual cull of Eastern Grey Kangaroos in the local nature reserves, because there are so many of them they actually put other wildlife at risk by over grazing and destroying habitat of some endangered species.

I live in a suburb and have had kangaroos in my yard on occasion. We only need to drive 2 minutes to regularly see large mobs of them in a nearby reserve. It's probably as exciting for us to see a kangaroo as it is for you to see a squirrel.

Canberra has one of the highest rates of insurance claims for vehicle damage caused by kangaroos, because it was designed for all suburbs to be within quick and easy access to nature reserves, so there are kangaroos all through the city.

While Kangaroos do quite a lot of panel damage to vehicles, hitting a wombat also causes a lot of damage to a car, because it takes out sumps, diffs etc. You might as well drive into a boulder. They're not huge animals, but they are solid.

bit more of Aussie wildlife
There was an earthquake here today - well in parts of Victoria. Little damage, but scary and still not good

I found this fascinating peregrine falcon's reaction to the earthquake (external link)
Thankfully it came back to the nest.

Just found another of it in more peaceful times

I found this one quite touching.
The interaction between bird and egg(s) - quite lovely

here's after the previous hatching
fluffy little things

You definitely wouldn't want to be sucked dry by that proboscis!

When I first saw this 2 days ago, I thought "Oh another pretty Butterfly" but now learn no it is and can be quite dangerous!

I do not believe I have ever seen one in Indiana. Now I do NOT WANT to see one either!!

Charles considering Jack takes most of his photos from planes this surely musty be some gigantic prehistoric monster that survived to this very day. :-)
