Mecca arrived in a Woolworths shopping bag in bad condition, but brought a persistent vigour with him that spurred him through some hard times. Like a fish on a line that refuses to give in, Mecca has an independent temperament and doesn’t put up with other kangaroos’ mischief. He has come out of his shell the longer he’s been here, growing more confident and outgoing. Despite his tough exterior, he has a soft interior and craves curling up into pouches at any opportunity. With his dark red coat, he can also camouflage perfectly with the red dirt found around our nursery.
