What’s a Kangaroo?
Kangaroos are grazing herbivores, which means their diet consists mainly of grasses. They can survive long periods without water.
Kangaroos are only in Australia. They are identified by their large muscular tails, strong back legs, large feet, short fur and long, pointed ears.
Females have pouches where their young live until they are old enough to emerge.
Kangaroos are in the Macropodidae family, which also includes tree-kangaroos, wallabies, wallaroos, quokkas and pademelons.
