However, experts have said that the behavior of the kangaroo might not have been that strange. Mark Eldridge, principal research scientist at the Australian Museum, said that he was aware of a wallaby that had repeatedly attempted to mate with rabbits it was locked in a cage with.

Eldridge told the BBC: “Hand-raised kangaroos or kangaroos that are habituated to people and other animals can display atypical behaviors  I know other cases where hand-raised kangaroos and wallabies… don’t think of themselves as kangaroos anymore and see other animals as potential sexual partners.”

Owner Dick has now said that he is planning on taking some photos and turning them into postcards for tourists.
