Welcome to our Sunday Selfie project: one of our male Kangaroos, affectionately known as Mister Big. He stands around 7 foot tall. Male kangaroos don’t mature until they are 10 years old.
Kangaroos are macropods, and are marsupials, which mean they carry their young in the mother’s pouch. Babies stay with their mother for two years and daughters never leave home, and stay with the same ‘mob’ for life.
Because kangaroos have side set eyes, they have monocular vision and can see behind them, to know to run away from things. They are a fleeing animal which eat grass, and not a predator.
Hope you enjoyed meeting Mister Big, we love him dearly. We have around 120+ kangaroos, plus 20+ koalas, and thousands more wildlife animals which we look after each day. Don’t forget to join our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, it stays open all week. Hope to see you back here again real soon. *waves paw* :=o)
