GOLD COAST , Australia, May 18 (UPI) -- A young kangaroo in Australia showed off its love for the camera as it boldly inspected a passerby's camera.

Australian GoPro athlete Nathan Pretty captured the video of the curious kangaroo, which he later shared to his Instagram account.


"A cool little vid from an epic few days on the goldy," Pretty wrote.

The video shows Pretty cautiously approaching the kangaroo who, rather than being spooked, sticks its nose right up to his camera and begins sniffing the lens.

Pretty encountered the curious animal near Sanctuary Cove in Australia's Gold Coast and two other kangaroos can be seen in the video, including one that appears to be slightly larger just out of frame.
