Roo look cold! Buff kangaroo appears to shiver as snow falls around him

This chattering kangaroo looks like he could use a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea.

The muscly marsupial appears to shiver as snow falls around him in Tolmie, Victoria where temperatures have plummeted to -6C. 

Joanne Arrowsmith, who posted the video on Storyful, started filming when she noticed the shivering kangaroo on he property on August 9. 

However the general manager of the Australian Reptile Park, Tim Faulkner, told Daily Mail Australia the eastern grey kangaroo was threatened rather than cold. 

‘In my opinion, he is not shivering,’ explained Mr Faulkner.

‘He is in a full extension of his body because it looks like he’s in a threat posture. 

‘This could be because people are in close proximity to him and he is using his body language to say: “look how big I am”.’ 

The muscly marsupial appears to shiver as snow falls around him in Tolmie, Victoria where temperatures have plummeted to minus 3 degrees.

Ms Arrowsmith had noticed the roo on her property before but was concerned last week when he appeared cold.

‘We spent time watching him through the window filming him, but felt so sorry for him as he shivered,’ Ms Arrowsmith said. 

‘We ended up moving away in the hope that he would feel safer and move himself into some sheltered area.’

The video was also posted on YouTube, prompting viewers to express their sympathies for the animal.

‘Awwww let him by the fire place so he can warm up!’ said one viewer.

‘Give him a blanket you fools,’ offered another.

Ms Arrowfield also said she planned to put up a shelter for any chilly kangaroos next winter.

Mr Faulkner said the kangaroo was probably shaking because he was stretching to his full capacity.

‘Think of a human right up on their toes – they shake and wobble as well.’

Mr Faulker added that eastern grey kangaroos rarely get cold. 

‘They are really adaptable and can handle 45 degree heat to -10 degrees. 

‘They can deal with the snow because they’re the all-terrain model for roos, unlike a red kangaroo that comes from the centre of Australia – they couldn’t handle the snow.’

The recent cold snap in Victoria continues this week with snowfall in Mount Buller, around an hour form Tolmie, recording a a staggering 18cm of snow in one night.
