"According to the origins theory model used by young earth creation scientists, modern kangaroos are the descendants of the two founding members of the modern kangaroo baramin that were taken aboard Noah's Ark prior to the Great Flood. It has not yet been determined by baraminologists whether kangaroos form a holobaramin with the wallaby, tree-kangaroo, wallaroo, pademelon and quokka, or if all these species are in fact apobaraminic or polybaraminic.
After the Flood, these kangaroos, bred from the Ark passengers, migrated to Australia. There is debate whether this migration happened over land with lower sea levels during the post-flood ice age, or before the super-continent of Pangea broke apart."

ummmm ... wow O_o
We spent a while in the Blue Mountains National Park today with friends. We didn't tramp around or anything, but rather hung out in a nice clearing all to ourselves and had a nice picnic. Actually however we didn't have the clearing quite all to ourselves: this kangaroo was hanging around, with her joey in her pouch. In some of the other photos I took you can see the joey, but this was the best pic of the mother, so I've chosen it for my blip.
