One of the most iconic and beloved animals in Australia. These magnificent marsupials can grow up to six feet in length and weigh over 200 pounds, making them the largest kangaroo species in the world.
They’re known for their powerful hind legs, which allow them to hop at incredible speeds of up to 60 km/h (37 mph), and their impressive endurance, as they can cover long distances without stopping. Red kangaroos are also well adapted to their harsh desert environment, with their thick fur and ability to conserve water, making them a true symbol of the Australian outback.
