Aussies are getting hot and bothered down under over this photograph of a “sexy” kangaroo (pictured below). 

Alternative intros to this article include: “draw me like one of your Australian girls,” “10 minutes into Netflix and chill and he gives you this look,” and something to do with “Roolander.”


Sandrina Duniau, a 30-year-old French tourist, spotted the dishy marsupial casually laying around in the entrance to a public restroom in John Forrest National Park in Perth, Western Australia.

“It was so funny – I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw it was posed like that," Sandrina told Caters News Agency. “It was right in the middle of the toilets blocking the entrance to the doorway and there was no way I was brave enough to go and bother it.”

“I couldn’t believe it and thought wow – only in Australia would something like this ever happen."

You might have heard that it’s insanely hot in Australia at the moment, even by their standards. Their current summer heatwave is so intense it’s causing “boiled” bats to fall out the sky and highways to literally melt. So, in all likelihood, this seductive kangaroo was probably just chilling out in the shade and enjoying a break from the mid-summer sun. He didn't know his image would be spread all over the world. 


Red kangaroos are the largest living marsupial, growing up to 1.8 meters (5.9 feet) tall. Although they look tough, the risk of them attacking a human is relatively low. According to the New South Wales government website, no more than five people are treated for kangaroo-related injuries every year. That's quite surprising, considering every other aspect of nature in Australia appears to be hell-bent on killing humans.

Fans of posing marsupials will know this isn’t the first kangaroo to get hearts swooning. Just last year, an Australian photographer snapped a photo of the “henchest kangaroo ever” showing off its muscles in a Western Australian creek.

Social media being social media, people are cracking jokes and deciding what to name this handsome fella. Be prepared for petitions to get this guy a modeling contract.
