5 Aussie Animals Caught Dancing (Gallery)

The Nature Conservancy has collaborated with partners to protect more than six million hectares of land in Australia. We’re very serious about protecting land for people and nature, but sometimes even we need to take a step back and have a laugh. With this in mind, we present Animal Dance Party—a light, fun look at the Australian critters we love so much getting down.

I’d say these kangaroo friends know a thing or two about dub stepping! Who wants more bass?

Partner dancing isn’t always easy at first–maybe these two need a little Marvin Gaye to set the tone?

Now throw your –errr, hands?–in the the air, and wave them like you just don’t care!
