In the UK, a new form of lawn mower is catching on, and it's not only energy-efficient and non-polluting, but fun to look at-- wallabies!

Mary Davis, who has been breeding them at her West Sussex home for over a decade, is now capitalizing off the inherent, grass-cutting abilities of the wallaby, given recent interest in the lawn-mowing animal, Reuters reported.

Davis sells them in pairs to those who are interested in a way to control their grass, and even potentially as a pet, as wallabies are a smaller, gentler version of a kangaroo. Not anyone can have one though-- you'll need at least half an acre of land, plenty of grass, and a large fence, Reuters reported.
