Marsupials from Australia
Kangaroos are covered in fur. They move by hopping and leaping around.
Most of the kangaroos' predators are now extinct. The main animals who prey on the kangaroo are dingoes and humans.

The Kangaroo's Habitat
Kangaroos are herbivores, so they only eat plants. They have chambered stomachs like cows, so they regurgitate their food and chew it as cud. Because they graze on grass, they have developed special teeth to help them eat.
Kangaroos find their water from streams and rivers that flow through their habitat.

After birth, the newborns climb into the mother's pouch, where they finish growing and developing. They will stay in the pouch for about nine more months.
