    As temperatures in Australia have topped 42 degrees Celsius, both people and animals are trying to cool themselves down by any means possible to escape from the extreme heat.

    A kangaroo has been captured on video cooling off in a backyard pool in the Upper Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia.

    The animal seems to be enjoying the cool water, just sitting and relaxing in the pool after a long and hot day. While not known for their swimming skills, kangaroos often seek out water in extreme heat, although usually in the wild.
