I hate to see a grown man beg  :D

so here are a few to get the ball rolling. Only kangaroos I'm afraid.

These were taken in the southern part of Western Australia, south of Perth.

@Game Warden  Are birds OK in this thread?

 

Australian fur-seal hauling out on my local beach ~ 12/01/12. Many of the seal pups do this from Nov through to Feb, some just for a rest but others do die from exhaustion/starvation. They also attract Great White Sharks.

 

Australian-Fur-seal_MG_5556.jpg

 

Eastern Grey Kangaroo ~ 09/06/13. Must be a wild ride for the joey in the pouch. Usually they bound off in the opposite direction but this girl surprised me when I was leaving the local saltmarsh after some bird photography. There is a grumpy male in this mob that I've had to fend off with the tripod on a few occasions.

Matt it has to go through Youtube first does it, as I dont have a You Tube account yet..I just tried to upload and got this message :  You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file..MP4.

@RichB it's easy to create an account, if you don't mind having one ... now I really want to see this video!

Great videos @RichB - I'd love to see a Tasmanian devil and echidna: I'd also like to see a platypus.
