Fun Kangaroo Facts
Kangaroos are a very interesting native Australian mammal. They live in the wild up to around 23 years. Weighing around 90kg and growing to be over 2m in height they are height and weight of some adults. You wouldn’t want to have a race with a kangaroo as they can travel as fast as 56km/h!
Kangaroos live in small groups called troops/herds/mobs which are typically made up of 50 or more animals. Female kangaroos have a pouch on the front of their bodies where the baby joey lives while it is young. Kangaroos are herbivores and eat grasses, flowers, leaves, ferns, moss, and even insects. Maybe you could add some grass and flowers to your kangaroo drawing!
