The Kangaroo. Storm-Chaser. Symbol of the Unknown.

The Kangaroo in Our World. Legends surround this Ancient Creature on an Olden Continent. Australia. That is. Is that Land Down Under with the many Wonders. So and so forth. Sally forth with i, Shiro as He jumps from Times and Places back to that First. First Times the Kanga did so Land. Here. Back then… In THAT Stormy Weather…


The Kangaroo is both Symbol and Emblem in Our World. Legends

of an Australian Icon, on Our Coat of Arms. Of Australia. That is. Is that

Place, so of the Birth Place of i, Shiro. As well. Well as being

a Mammal, the Female Kangaroo comes equipped with an in-built

Infant Carry-Bag. The Pouch. For Joey…

All and Sexed Young, both named same. Those

lil’ Ones, so called that is. The Joey’s.


Which Btw’s… Joey’s Mum can so tweak Her Carry-Bag.

Therein. A lil’.

To suit. Her. Needs, Moods, Prevailing Environ Conditions.


The Big Red.

Oft called.

The Largest Marsupial known hereof. Our World.

Legends attribute such too. To

The Red Kangaroo Btw’s… which, Sciences has so nomened:


MACROPUS RUFUS… of The Macropodidae Family.

Image. As Belows.



Has alongs with Other similar Types,

long stormed and spread itself arounds the Aussie Continent, far

and wide. That it is.


At speed, an Adult can vault some 9-10 mtrs lengthwise each

bound. Step. Hop etc…


Also some 3 mtrs High. As well. Well as such incredible



(Music Link)


Far and Wides feats they Hop, Jumps and so on, sally forth

with their large Feets. Forthrightly really and well. Thus and so.


The Rear Feet are powerful in deed, with the Kangaroo able

to fight, kick and even disembowel.


Living in, inhabiting a Large Place and Landscape with many facets of

Nature. A Nature that

oft Show cases, epitomises the Seasons. Extremes.


A Continent, a Country…

…Of approx. the same Large-ness as…


Size of Continental (Nth) America.

As Belows. Imaged. Herein.




Australia… Sized Ups…



A Creature synonymous with Our Land Down Under.



Yet and still

The Kangaroo.


Symbol of the Unknown…

is what Our World Legends do so and say. As Belows. Herein.


The meaning of the Aboriginal Term… KANGAROO… is…

I don’t Know… Literally. Unknown… is this Creatures Name.

The Main Issue is that THERE ARE also literally several

Hundreds of Aboriginal

Type Languages and Dialects. Never and




as many who so Politicise, Monetise and Massage the Subject try to

pretend. Others-wise.


Saying… Kangaroo… simply means… i, Shiro have no idea. About that.

Name. Which means… this and thus, the same. Don’t Know. That.



Somewhere and somewhen. It seems.


Various Aboriginal Tribes developed a Range of Weaponry to suit

their Olden Hunting Style. Including this valuable Food Source. Tracking

spoor/prints and at Waterholes, the Hunting Techniques refined to suit.

Cooked over a Fire, supplying Survival/Nutrients.


Main Weaponry: Spear, Woomera, Club.


There are 4 Types/Species:

Red, Eastern Grey, Western Grey and Antilopine.

A Community Creature, living in Groups.


An Island off the Coast of South Australia…

where i, Shiro does so live. Now.

Has been named in dedication.

Kangaroo Island.


This via British Explorer Matthew Flinders on His Ship

The Investigator on account of the large numbers

of Western Grays on the Island. The French Explorer

Nicholas Baudin

soon thereafter mapped much of the Island.


For those with an interest;

The Aboriginal Tribes associated referred to this place

as the Island of the Dead. Karta so nomened.



The most likely Modern meaning/usage appears… GANGURRU

derived vis The Botanist, Sir Joseph Banks scribings of the

GUUGU YIMIDHIRR Tribal Language who used this Word/Term

when referring

to the Grey Kangaroo circa 1770 ish.


The Female Red has some unique Inner Buttons. Feminine wiles

and Ways. That can be so pressed. Pressing

needs for Water, Survival at-large Conditions in- and un-favourable.

Pressed Off. The Reproductive Cycle.


Has a Double Egg Type Capacity also. Also Inner Conditions

prevail so that

One can Grow, Mature.


Whilst The Other pressed Off, put on Hold. Embryo-ed, on ice,

per se. For a while. Till

the Other Elder One grows Ups. Mores. To

and on, then

follow Ups with…

A Pouch… of Goodness…

Tea for Two…too.

That is. Then Pressed On again. When That One. All

Done as well. Well as



ensuring Species Continuation by allowing Birth every Month or so

for those so

favoured Seasons. Seasons progressions means TWO too. Two


Joey’s… at differing Development Stages can still and so feed. Off

the One and same, Mum. Mum, in cases of this and that

Siblings only lil’ aparts… can change Her Feeding Recipes. To

suit TWO too. As required, needed. Pressed.


One Teat supplies heavy, rich, nutrient dense for the Elder…

Other adjacent will supply the Basic Baby Formula.

Teats… of a different Kind. Two.


Teats and Treats. For two. Joey’s. At Once. From One.


Joey’s do and so Feed off Mum for quite some

Times and Places, oft outgrowing the

Pouch First. One

eager to get in amongst the Stalls and Tables laid out

Relishing his chance he strung out, wrung out those and these

that and this Our World. Our Home. That which We share.

The Awe



of those things that really Matter. Within. To Mind. Also.

When Living in this Moment. This here. This Now.

This moment of Real Emotion that so tugs and tears.

That’s… Real.
