Zoo Releases Precious First Moments Baby Kangaroo Sticks Head out of Mama’s Pouch
The 1982 Ridley Scott movie “Blade Runner” is considered a classic, not only due to great performances by its actors but also for its unique science-fiction setting.
Set in a future where lifelike androids are nearly indistinguishable from humans, police have to resort to esoteric tests to determine who’s man and who’s machine. And these tests involve weighing individuals reactions to questions about animals.
Why? Because in the movie, Fifi and Fido and almost all of Earth’s fauna have gone extinct. Questions about calfskin wallets and stranded tortoises get asked, but I think Harrison Ford (who played an investigator) could’ve simplified the whole thing by just showing a picture of a kangaroo.
There’s more than one reason why kangaroos elicit such delight among adults and kids alike: their perky ears, their bouncy gaits and their utterly adorable offspring.
