If you live in Australia, there's a good chance you've seen a kangaroo in the wild.

But that doesn't make it any less of a sight when two of the beasts make their way into a suburban neighborhood.

They're so majestic, like giant deer, but made of pure muscle, with huge, thick tails and sharp claws.

And they use those assets to mess up rival kangaroos during mating season, apparently!

| Filed under: AustraliasticHealthSurgeryPetsFishCrazzzzy

This goldfish needed life saving surgery so his owner ponied up the dough!!

This might seem pretty crazy, but we totally get doing anything for our pets.

A woman in Australia paid $200 to have a tumor removed from her pet goldfish George!! She loved George and had had him for ten years so she couldn't just let him suffer.

So she had a legit vet take her fish in for surgery! Like, real surgery, with anesthesia and all!

Rebel Wilson is one little hot Aussie dish, so it's natural that she's teamed up with DISH to be the voice of their sassy Kangaroo, named Hopper.

Unfortunately, we don't get to actually see Rebel's golden blonde hair or sparkling smile, but we do get to hear that sex-ay accent so, really, can we ask for more??

Kristen Bell looooooves animals. Heck, she literally broke down and cried once because she saw a sloth.

Seriously. That actually happened.

Anywayz, she told a story to Craig Ferguson about how she went to a rescue petting zoo for injured animals while in Australia one day.

She saw an injured kangaroo, and she couldn't do anything other than lay down with it and just spoon away!

So… did her hubby Dax Shepard get in on the spooning action??

Apparently not, according to her, he "doesn't have the balls."

Whoa! Dems fightin' words! LOLz!

Bruce Springsteen Makes A Furry New BFF In Australia! The Boss Has Never Been So Cute!

| Filed under: AustraliasticBruce SpringsteenCuteness!Slithering SnakesWombat

Bruce Springsteen might be a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, but deep down inside he's a total softie!!!

The Boss was recently doing a string of shows down under in Australia, and he and E Street Band decided to take a quick break from the action and paid a visit to the Featherdale Wildlife Park!

Well Bruce got a chance to meet some of the furriest critters the park had to offer, and there was a super magical moment he got a chance to cuddle with a wombat named Bumble, and from what we can tell it was love at first sight!!

The legendary rocker definitely looked like he enjoyed his time with his furry friend and cradled the marsupial like a newborn baby!!

In a slightly-less adorable scene, The Boss got a chance to hold onto a snake and almost didn't seem to mind that the reptile was slowly wrapping itself around his neck!

Careful, Bruce!!!
