One of the few things we know about Australia and Australians (and the less than outstanding Kangaroo Jack movie), is that Kangaroos can be a frisky bunch of animals. They are often seen as nuisances and pests, but are also a little scary since a strong kick from them can cave in a man’s chest.

Coming in at an average height of 6 feet, these Australian animals can be a tall order to handle when getting into a bit of rough housing (especially when they are feeling a bit peevish about New Zealand having all the cool Lord of the Rings movies). Today however, we have a gorgeous young grey kangaroo and a young Rottweiler playing together like they’re the best of friends. It’s also really cute when the kangaroo ‘pets’ the dog like a human would.
