"Tourists often come and say the pig and kangaroo, they were doing rude things," Dick told the BBC.

Ryan Frazer spotted the couple getting intimate while in Aileron during a research trip. He took a series of photos of the pair. It began with the kangaroo innocently cuddling with Apples the pig. He said the two became cozy and the kangaroo eventually "worked himself up and went for it."

"I didn't even know it was possible," Frazer told the Daily Mail.

Frazer said he was with a group of colleagues, all of whom were bewildered by what they were witnessing, saying, "Should we be standing here, watching, taking photos?"

The unlikely relations lasted about 10 minutes, according to Frazer.

Frazer said he and his colleagues asked a local if they had "met the kangaroo and pig." The local responded by saying, "Yeah, the kangaroo's been heaps calmer since the pig has been in there."
