    Funny, but it looks fake. That and do you think the wallabies would not have been threatened and stopped or attacked the child? Although I don't know much about wallabies maybe they are extremely docile and tame. Id be pretty pissed of is some kid came in while I was.....

    James, Allan,
    Please explain why you think the photo looks fake.
    I examined it in Photoshop and there are no telltale artifacts of a cut-n-paste job. Even when a picture is reduced, they will be very visible when the photo is converted to lab color.

    Im not a expert, but the layering and the focus seems to be off. Everything looks to flat. Plus there are no visible shadows. Although that could just be the lighting depending on what time of day it was. IHMO of coerce.

    Just looks fake that's all. Maybe I've seen so many internet fakes that I can't accept anything even remotely bizzare as real any more. [​IMG] The kid looks (very well) pasted on to me (there's no shadow for the kid, but there is for everything else in the photo).
    Here's a better copy:

    I've seen this one before. The best caption I've seen to it was:
    "Not now kid, I'm busy."

    I, too examined it in Photoshop. It appears legit to my eyes. When zoomed in I saw no hint of a cut and paste job.
    That is not to say that the picture is 100% legit, I could be wrong. [​IMG] If it is a fake, it's a darn good one.
