kangaroo and squirrel. really

"Eekhoorn in een boom en een kangoroe," reads the title of this graceful drawinng by Gerrit Willem Dijsselhof (Dutch, 1866-1924).  That is, it's a Squirrel In a Tree and a Kangaroo.  Not sure where Dijsselhof ever clapped eyes on a Kangoroe, but I've never seen such a curvaceous one (and that was a dead giveaway for his Arts and Crafts - era leanings).  Want to refer to the record at the Rijkmuseum?  Here is that link.
