Red Kangaroo

Measured pair of scaled drawings of Red Kangaroo in various standing poses

The Red Kangaroo (Osphranter rufus), maintaining national symbol status and known for their hind-legged bouncing, is an Australian marsupial related to the eastern gray, western gray, and antilopine kangaroos. In addition to Australia, Kangaroos can be found in New Guinea, New Zealand, and on offshore islands. Nearly all kangaroos use their strong hind legs as the main source of mobility while their long tails maintain balance, even acting as a third leg at times.

Other physical characteristics of the Red Kangaroo include human-like and agile forelimbs, small heads, rounded ears, and protruding lips. When a young kangaroo, called a joey, is born, it crawls into the mother’s pouch where it maintains attachment for several weeks until becoming more active. Kangaroos can be irregular in their cycle of activity, travel in groups although seen as independent, and vigorously box as a form of defense against predators.

Series of assorted elevation illustrations of the Red Kangaroo jumping and lying down

Red Kangaroos have a standing height of 4’10”-6’10” (147-208 cm), body length between 39”-63” (99-160 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 50-200 lb (23-91 kg). The tail of the Red Kangaroo is 35”-44” (89-112 cm) in length. Red Kangaroos have a typical lifespan of 8-16 years in the wild and up to 25-27 years when raised in captivity.

Marsupials are mammals characterized by the pouch the mother has for raising and protecting her young. Marsupials are most commonly associated with Austrailia, where Kangaroos and Koalas are found, but marsupials, specifically the opposum, are also found in North, Central, and South America.
