Dear all
Are there any roo experts out there? I was walking on Farrer Ridge the other day and saw a roo  just down the hill from me behaving oddly.  It drew itself  up to full height but completely balanced on its tail... was clutching a pile of dead grass to its chest.. threw itself around for a while in this pose, arched its back then back down to the ground again. I thought for a moment it was having a go at another roo but they were all just grazing and taking no notice.  I kept my distance needless to say. I have some pictures if anyone is interested.. they are about 300k each.. have reduced them down as far as I can.
Can anyone enlighten me?  Was it a mating/territorial stance do you think?
