...by the way, do you really know why the marsupial animal with strongly developed hindquarters and a great leaping power,
a native of Tasmania & present-day Australia, was originally named a 'kangaroo'? -It'll make you laugh for sure,
just as when you think about why 'orange' is called 'apelsin' in the Swedish language!



By the way, did you know that it was a Swede named Solander (Daniel Carlsson) who was the first to scientifically describe the kangaroo already in the 1700s. He first discovered the animal at present-day Botany Bay and made his notes once in the area of what today is Cookstown.
Solander was one of Linnés most talented students, and worked for British Museum for many years. He also participated in, and was a member of,  the Cook Expedition 1768-71.  How about that?
Look at a map and locate Cookstown and Botany Bay
