Kangaroos Scratching


A joey trying to find just the right position to get at that scratch.


In a graceful sweeping arc, this kangaroo reaches round to get to an itch at the base of her tail.

Generally, kangaroos are not given to social grooming, though I did see one female briefly scratch the base of a reclining female's tail.


A very cute scratching 'roo.
