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!
Marsupials give birth to their babies early and then carry them in protected pouches until they can survive on their own. Red kangaroos' babies, or joeys, remain in their mother's pouches for up to a year while she nurses and nurtures them.
Red kangaroos are herbivores this means they only eat plants. They stand on their hind legs and push, jab and kick at each other. Their powerful legs allow them to jump as much as 30 feet! They live in groups called mobs that range from 30 to over 300 animals.
Perfect for imaginative fun, Schleich's kangaroo makes an ideal play time companion.
