"A new study suggests non-domesticated kangaroos can intentionally
communicate with humans similar to how domesticated animals such as
dogs, horses or goats do.
Researchers behind the study published in the journal Biology Letters on
Wednesday set up a task known as “the unsolvable problem task,” in which
kangaroos were presented with food trapped inside a plastic container.
When the animals tried, and failed, to open the container to access the
food, the kangaroos gazed at researchers and back to the container as a
way of pointing or gesturing toward the object. The study was conducted
by researchers from London’s University of Roehampton and the University
Via Frederick Wilson II.
