A Sweet But Mischievous Rescued Kangaroo Who Loves to Eat Toilet Paper and Suck on Shorts

The Australian Bat Clinic & Wildlife Trauma Centre near Gold Coast, Queensland, is an amazing place that not only rescues flying foxes, but also other native animals such as wallabies and kangaroos. One such rescue is a sweet but mischievous juvenile kangaroo named Matilda, who seems to entertain the resident humans as much as she frustrates them. Among Matilda’s favorite snacks, aside from the usual roo fare, are such household products as toilet paper and paper towels. When she tires of that, then she likes to suck on the outer seam of her favorite human’s shorts as a way to keep company.

Busted Part 2!!! Not content with just toilet roll, Matilda also has a varied diet of Hand Towel as well :)

Trying to work on a computer while Matilda sucks on your shorts. Oh well, I guess it’s better a change of diet from the toilet roll!
