Red kangaroos live in the arid plains of central Australia and are the largest surviving marsupials anywhere in the world-they can grow taller than a fully grown man!
Red kangaroos are herbivores this means they only at plants. They can go long periods of time without water as long as they have access to green plants. They are nocturnal and spend their days sleeping or resting.
When male kangaroos fight, it looks like they're boxing. They stand on their hind legs and push, jab and kick at each other.
Red kangaroos have powerful legs which allow them to jump as high as 30 feet! They live in groups called mobs that range anywhere from 30 to 300 hundred animals. Perfect for imaginative fun, Schleich's male kangaroo makes an ideal play time companion.
