Kangaroos

If in Australia and you do not get to see a mob (also troop, court) as group  of kangaroos are called, then whats the fun. Got to see a mob in Canberra in wild and what joy it was to observe the animal regarded as the national symbol. Some interesting facts: male Kangaroos are called bucks, boomers, jacks, or old men and females are does, flyers or jills and young ones are joeys.

Kangaroos have powerful hind legs, large feet and a long muscular tail for balance with a small head. female Kangaroos have a pouch called marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development..



Kangaroos has been a source of food for indigenous Australians being high on protein and low in fat.
