Stretched Canvas

DESCRIPTION

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.

A Kangaroo is a marsupial mammal. It is a macropod which means "big foot". A male kangaroo is called a boomer. A female kangaroo is called a flyer. A baby kangaroo is called a joey.

The Kangaroo moves by hopping on its powerful hind legs. It uses its thick long tail to balance its body while hopping. A kangaroo can hop at up to 60kmh (40mph). It can also leap over obstacles up to 3m (10ft) high. Because of the unusual shape of its legs and its bulky tail a kangaroo can't walk or move backwards very easily. I captured this Kangaroo jumping about 1.5 metres as compared to the picket fence.

The kangaroo usually rests in the shade during the day and comes out to eat in the late afternoon and night when it’s much cooler. It eats mostly grass. It needs very little water to survive. It can survive without drinking for months.

There are over 40 different types (species) of Kangaroo. The smaller ones are usually called Wallabies. The largest is the Red Kangaroo.

NB: An early pioneer Englishman asked an aboriginal how it got its name, the Aboriginal, not knowing the English language replied, “Kangaroo” which in Aboriginal language meant “I don’t know what you’re saying!”
