Kangaroos can communicate with humans like domesticated animals, according to a study out of two universities in Australia. Because where else could one study kangaroos?

Scientists put food in a box and closed it. Instead of trying to open the box themselves, the roos made eye contact with the humans, nonverbally asking for the box to be opened. This is a behavior that is typically expected of domesticated animals but these kangaroos were not domesticated.

Scientists say that they hope this research helps endear more Australians to the kangaroo because they can typically be considered as a pest.
