The reason why you don't call a kangaroo SKIP

Recommended Posts

Roos box like deer and cattle head butt. It's part of their territory claiming and mating rituals. Paraglider was likely a stranger on their territory.

Skippy the Bush Kangaroo was a kid's show I used to watch in the 1960s - the theme tune is now pestering my mind as it was a very catchy tune!


There was a famous none-fiction comedy novel about a kangaroo called Matilda who was taken to New York on the Boxing Circuit in the 1960s/70s and won many fights.It was first written to amuse  Prince Rainier the 3rd of Monaco by Paul Gallico. People likely know that author from a charming movie decades ago starring Angela Landsbury - Mrs Harris goes to Paris (with Omar Shariff) or another movie -The Poseiden Adventure. I read his sad wartime book The Snow Goose as part of the school curriculum studies. I have reason to believe that he may have worked for the Secret Service in the UK as well.
