The Kangaroo is probably the most iconic animal that is associated with Australia. The kangaroo is a marsupial mammal of which there are over sixty different species. They range from the largest (Red Kangaroo) to the smallest (Wallabies). The Red Kangaroo is the largest marsupial mammal in the world and can weigh up to 90 kilograms. Kangaroos of differing species can be found all across Australia whether the climate is cold or hot and in desert or tropical areas. They can even be found on beaches whilst others live in trees! All kangaroos are herbivorous, eating a range of plants and shrubs. Most are nocturnal but some are active in the early morning and late afternoon. The Kangaroo, along with the Emu, were selected as symbols of Australia and are featured on the official Australian coat of arms.
