Honestly #TeamZlatan up until that horrible flop 🤨 ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Softest sport in the world.

I felt both should have been sent off. Zlatan for retaliation and the other fella for stamping. but i can understand why it was a yellow instead. It's very on the line stuff but all in all, a correct decision.

This game is an absolute joke!

Both should be kicked off the team for good. That’s how you play sport is it?

Tory Bryn Rodda Tate Spurgeon Zlatan!

Enrico da Costa Chris Marques Myer Raymond you have to admit that this is pathetic 😂😂

Ben McQueen holy wow 😂

Hahahahaha King does as he pleases.

Soccer is sooo tough honestly how he got up and was only supported by one man is beyond me hopefully he can come back from this horrific incident and become the player he once was Mario Carusello

Jared Dean same ole Zlatan

Sascha Keats The acting in this is Oscar worthy

Rylan Meisinger youll appreciate this

LOL! Classic Zlatan Pierdonato Fino 😂

Michael that you?

Lauren Martin Matthew Craft 🤣🤣 this is what I hate about football lol

Tom Strickland Thomas Gilbert triggered by this... he is a wannnnnkerrrrrr

Gavin Aidan wow

Lachlan Barnes Why does Zlatan have fans?

Eden James Jeremy dual sniper attack

This how you played? Brenden Mifsud

Ako Spinooza why?

Gerald Randle imagine if any afl player went down like this after that contact

Surome, dodgy Zlatan! Something Lakh would do!

Andrew Walker sums up the sport nicely

Luke Vachalec no faking in rugby league!!!!

Lovely little boy! By the way, I think Kangaroos are born ready to be yoga instructors...impressive how his legs and tail are above and over his head. He's really snug in that pouch! ❤😜

Nickname Ginger???

It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful kind people can be so loving and compassionate to animals. Every time i see a video or picture of the kangeroos my heart sings and i feel myself smiling. Thank you Brolga and Team for the fantastic job you do. Angela White (UK)

Next baby needs to be called Meghan!!!

How old are the babies when they are too big to be carried around by the mothers?

Do the mums have milk and are they feeding the babies?

Aren’t kangaroos wonderful?

Love the way Harry pops his head out, and Indi stands up straight to show him off :) <3

Maybe the human Harry will come and visit when in Oz later this year 🤗

He is the best looking Harry I have ever seen 💕

The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs

We are so happy Julian rescued this darling little orphaned baby kangaroo and gave him a second chance at life. @julian_p_a_s_c_h_e_n (IG)

Julian learned on our tour (see second pic), how to stop and check kangaroos who have been hit by vehicles to see if there is a baby kangaroo who has survived in mums pouch. Julian held baby for 350km and delivered him safely to a wonderful wildlife carer! Baby has been named George.

Often baby survives in mums pouch after being hit by a vehicle because she has very strong muscles in her pouch that keep baby safe.

Is it common in Australia for kangaroos to be hit by cars? In America we have raccoons and skunks, etc.

Oh well done you Julian 💕

So wonderful that Julian had been on one of your wonderful tours and learned how to rescue a baby whose mother had been killed. Well done, Julian! :-) Shows how important it is to check the pouches of any dead kangaroo you see. You never know what you might find inside like this gorgeous little fellow. <3 We've been busy getting the donkeys ready for our event today. Just have to pack everything into the car, load the donks into the trailer and then we're off! Hope you're having a lovely Sunday there. Love to you all xxx

Blessings to you , so sad to think they are killed,

Aww look at that little cutie so glad that George was saved an delivered to u all to take care of him. Thank u Julian for getting this little cutie to a safe place.. Thank u for sharing this little guy with us..

This brings tears ♥️ thanks 🙏 Julian you are a hero. Thanks Chris for educating us. It is a lesson I will never ever forget 😌

Aww hope George is ok bless him 🙏💜🐨

Thank you for being an angel of mercy!😽💞💘🇨🇦

How wonderful thank you Julian!

You’re team is wonderful!!

Love the extra mile times 50 that you people go for the animals. Doesn’t feel like much from here to you, I bet, but you’d be squirming big time under my hug. So... thank you for all of it and then some.

Bitter sweet :/ <3

Thanks, Julian 🙏

For all those fans who love Bradley and have been asking where he is....here he is! 😀 Bradley is getting really big and doesn’t want to go in his pouch anymore. But he still loves a little cuddle and his milk 🍼❤️ ...

I just love all the videos and the pictures u share with us. Plus learning all the information u share about the Kangaroo's I've learned so much so thank u from Kansas

Why are there such long nipples on the bottles? Is it because their face/jaw is so elongated? I know...strange question! 😂

Oh no... anyone else see a big boy sook that is going to be a massive big boy at the sanctuary

Aaaaawwww! 😍😍😍Good to know though that little Bradley won't turn into a pouch potato.😁

Darling Bradley may be too grown up for his pouch now but he sure still loves his milk! <3 How long before he goes to live out in The Sanctuary with his mate, Max? I'm sitting here busily cleaning donkey bridles for Sunday's event. Just wish there weren't so many brass buckles to polish!! :-) Then it's baths for Nell and Cassie tomorrow. At least it's supposed to be hot and sunny so they won't mind. Have a great Saturday. Love to you all xxx

Do the babies stay close to their mothers when it is cold if they are too big for the pouch?

Thank you for sharing Bradley’s videos. Enjoy watching him as he grows

Aw so very adorable !! Aw ld love to do this ! I'm in Canada and we don't have Kangeroos here only at the zoo s

How sweet. Just love the work you get the opportunity to do each and every day. Blessings to you and your team...taking such great care with these lovely kiddos..

I may come down and visit you guys. I am truly inspired by your kindness to animals and kindness in general! Lots of love from the states!

WOW! I was in AS last year only to visit this Sanctuary but sadly wasn't Possible cause they explain that I should buy 2 days before.😞 But, I have plans to comeback to the desert and spend more time to meet Roger and your friends! So cute!

P.S. Looks like the chilly mornings have persuaded you to wear long trousers rather than shorts for walking round the Sanctuary!! Very wise! :-) Keep warm! ;-)

Ooo, I had the chance to hold them as an baby kangaroo, so big already, 😍😍

I don't think these two will ever give up their milk

Brrrrr, sounds like you're having cold nights now. It's warm here - and sunny! - during the day but we had quite a thick frost last night!! Keep your fingers crossed for us that the weather stays good here until Sunday as we have our first donkey event of the summer. It's at a beautiful stately home in Wales so should be a lovely day out if rather a long way to go! :-) How old are Milly and Tilly now and do they still go round together? They are so cute <3 Have a great weekend. Lots of love to all xxx

I never realized how much I needed to see daily posts of kangaroos until I started following your page. They are all so adorable and my son loves the videos. ❤️

Ah, the dynamic duo!!! How they have grown! Who doesn’t want a hot beverage on a cold morning?? 😍😍😍😍😍

Looks good from Ireland where it is a glorious warm 16 degrees.

I have loved watching them grow up. It’s lovely to see they are still best friends. 😁💗

O.M.G.- treasure the memories!! Xxxxx

Morning wish I was there with you

Peek-a-boo with Indi’s cute baby 💕 ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Aww❤️ Do baby females have a little tiny pouch or does that develop as they mature?

I so love it when the babies pop their heads out of mum's pouch! <3 They look so sweet. I remember when we were last there and one of the babies kept on toppling out of the pouch and then scrambling back in with those lanky legs. I presume this little one is still too young to actually come out of Indi's pouch? Does Mister Jones still take milk from her or is he weaned now? Love to you all. xxx

This might be a stupid question, but I'm not a kangaroo expert, so forgive me. 😂 With all your orphaned joey's, do any adult female kangaroos ever take them in?

Beautiful baby . Just out of curiosity . How does the baby breathe inside that pouch ?

Is that Mr. Jones?! 💙💞☺️😇

Do the babies relieve themselves in the pouch?

How close together is this little one in age to Mr. Jones? Is it normal to have two so close together?

What is baby's name?

I vote you call it Ralph its a boy. No particular reason :P

So cute ,How old are they when they come out and start going on their own ?

Wow my she sure has grown from when indie was a joey congrats to you Bolger and indie

Amazed at the size & strength of the adults’ hind legs. Cute papoose.

Never get tired of seeing that! Thank you!

If this isn’t the cutest thing ever???? Love these little (and large) creatures!

Peek-A-Boo what very nice name for a beautiful baby. She have also a gris head like her mother? I wish her a great healthy life.♥️😍

That is absolutely full of cuteness.

He looks like he sees he's being observed... Soft eyes!!!

Indi's color is so beautiful!! Precious baby!

Good morning little one mummy too how wonderfull is mother nature in blessing this wonderfull gift x

What big eyes you have.... Does this cutie have a name yet

O.M.G.- just so precious!!Thankyou Brolga!!

Awww peek-a-boo roo. I don’t think anything can be cuter. Such a beautiful baby. ❤️❤️❤️

oh my gpodness........look at this adorable bebe'.......

How can you not love watching that absolutely beautiful 😙

I love these creatures so much. Thank you for looking out for them, Brolga. There's something special and wonderful about you, your partner and all those who help out there. All your creature friends...I wish them so much good health and love. Thank you for doing what you do and for all you share. You help give me a part of the sense of purpose that helps me through all the dark times. Every day I've learned I can help spread some of the same kindness and love you share with those whom you love. It's helped me learn to consider my life being well worth all the struggle.

Gorgeous photo! <3 Who does my namesake, Terri, hang out with? Any news yet on a name for Indi's new baby? I still think Harrison (Harry for short) would be great and so appropriate at the moment. ;-) Many thanks for your email. Have a lovely Hump Day. :-) Love to all xxx

Wish I still had Syd. 😔. She and Roobs would be a lil bff mob

Awww, so cute! And I'm surprised that after many hours w..........ell spent browsing your Facebook page, there are still new kangaroos I haven't "met" yet. 😍😍😍 How many do you have in total? Do they all have names? Looking forward to meet the gang soon (hopefully in the not too far future).

So georgeus are there two separate mobs one for females and one for males??

They are such sweet gentle loveable furry souls and it is a joy to see your pictures. Thank you. 💗🇬🇧

Sounds like a good way to live. They all seem pretty ready to bond with each other. ☀️☀️☀️☀️

I always have a smile when seeing your post. Thank you!

Gorgeous 😍 now the chill has hit us the mobs are coming back here..this morning a small mob of girls..some babies having babies 😁😂 so tiny to be mummas 😍😍

What a sweet greeting between such lovelies!!! Beautiful start to my day! 😍😍😍😍😍

I noticed that too with my wallabies. The girls stick to together and around the place.

Isn’t this just precious. They really care for one another. Such beautiful animals. Love and blessings for everything you do for these precious souls.💙💙💙

Female kangaroos in little mobs...such clever ladies. 😍

Thanks for sharing, such beatiful photos ☺️ 💞

Je regrette toujours le manque de traduction en français. J'adore les kangourous et longue vie à ce sanctuaire qui lutte contre les chasseurs.

Your photos are stunning.

Sweet.

So cute :-) Have a great Wednesday <3
