One morning, a Red-necked Wallaby Joey and his Mum were enjoying the garden. When all of a sudden the Joey decided it was time to climb out of Mum’s pouch and test out his hopping skills to see how fast he could get around the garden.
“Hey Mum, I think I might go for a very fast hop over there.”
“I better check out what’s around just in case.”
“Maybe I’ll hop over that way”
“No…..I’m going to hop really fast this way”
“Mum…..Mum….watch me go Mum”
“Watch out for your tail Mum ‘cos here I come.”
And like a rocket, the Joey came hurtling back to Mum.
“Hey Mum, that was fun!”
“Yes dear, you really can hop fast.”
