A bizarre romance between a kangaroo and female pig named Apple has been exposed online after one of the tourists in Australia pictured them having sex.
It turned out that the amorous animals who live at the Aileron Roadhouse in the Northern Territory have “been in relationship for a year”.
Commenting on the pictures he took two weeks ago Frazer said: “We met them at a fence near the landmark and we were standing right in front of them really and they stopped there and were checking us out. It was pretty clear from the outset the kangaroo and the pig were strangely close, they were touching each other, the pig was nuzzling under the kangaroos arms.
The kangaroo kind of like had its arm over the pig, and they were standing there checking us out – but like ‘together’ checking us out. The kangaroo got up on his back legs and showing his height, he was pretty big, almost two metres tall. I don’t know if it was a territory thing, but he got himself worked up a bit and started hugging the pig from behind.
We were just standing there like, ‘this is strange. Should we still be standing here, watching, taking photos’? When the kangaroo finished, the pig tried to jump on the back of the kangaroo for a bit, maybe to reciprocate… that’s when we decided we’d had enough. The pig even seemed to mount the kangaroo afterwards, pigs are pretty smart, and the geese were just sitting there the whole time chilling out.
We were pretty weirded out about the whole thing afterwards and I knew this was something unusual to see. I showed a few people over the following days, but I’ve been totally overwhelmed by the reaction now. What perhaps was the most surprising about this was the mutual affection between the pair, it was more affection than I’ve seen between a human couple.”
According to wildlife experts, a cross-species love relationship is rare but could be explained by spending years in captivity together.
