Facts About Kangaroo
This species does not have a scientific classification, and it is named according to its size. The most abundant species of the subfamily Macropodinae are called kangaroos, and the smaller ones are called Ualabí. They are also called Ualarus, always depending on the length and width of their physiognomy.
The three kangaroo species are the red kangaroo (Macropus Rufus), the eastern grey kangaroo (Macropus giganteus), and the western grey kangaroo (Macropus fuliginosus), all of which belong to the continent of Oceania.
Kangaroos can reach 2 meters in length, and through their tail that serves as support, balance, and even as a third leg, they manage to make high jumps at incredible speeds.
Various herbs, shrubs, leaves, flowers, ferns, mosses, and fruits are the main components of their diet. So as we can see, they are exclusively herbivorous. They prefer to feed in groups during the twilight hours and nights.
They can go for long periods without water. Their groups are extensive; they can have from 30 to 50 elements distributed in clear terrain.
The courtship from the male to the female can last from a few hours to two or three days. The male follows the female kangaroo in heat and often watches the opening of the female’s urogenital sac while touching her long tail with one of his legs.
The smaller ones, or wallabies, make lateral movements with their tails before copulation, producing clicks that attract the female’s attention. Mating may last a few minutes, or on the contrary, in the case of the grey kangaroo, may last up to an hour or more.
