Don't ROO-in it

Still in Tasmania I got to check out some Kangaroo love.

In case you were wondering how kangaroos court, listen up gentlemen, they have much to teach.

First the kangaroo who is the biggest is called the BOOMER and he usually gets his pick, and the females usually prefer a bigger, stronger dude. But to win her over he starts by rubbing her tail with his claws (who doesn't love a good massage?), then he pursues her for as long as it takes, hoping (or hopping) he will win her affection.

And the poor female, if she does decide to mate, she will be constantly pregnant for the rest of her life. Yikes--ever hear of adoption??

That's enough to make me stay single if I were a kangaroo!
