'Hey Buddy': Photographer Meets Friendly Kangaroo in Perth

A photographer in Perth was joined by a new “work colleague” as he was taking pictures of a spring sunset last year from Heirisson Island.

Video by Liam Drennan shows his furry companion, a friendly kangaroo. “The roo was very friendly and hung around for pats,” Drennan said. “I am a New Zealander but have been living in Perth the last seven years and this was my first visit to this particular location.”

This footage shows the friendly roo sitting with Drennan while watching the sunset.

The footage, from last October, was posted to TikTok in February this year. Credit: Liam Drennan via Storyful
