Nothing against kangaroos, but they don’t really belong in trees. They’re hoppers, not climbers. Eff that, says the tree kangaroo, I’m getting my climb on. And so it was.

And I’m happy to hear from you with suggestions on what to cover next. If it’s weird and we can find footage of it, it’s fair game. You can get me at email@example.com or on Twitter at @mrMattSimon.
