They are not farmed to any extent, but wild kangaroos are shot for meat, leather hides , sport, and to protect grazing land for sheep and cattle. Although there is some controversy, harvesting kangaroo meat has many environmental and health benefits over traditional meats.

Kangaroos have powerful hind legs and short, thumbless forelimbs. Kangaroos can travel at speeds up to 30 miles per hour and can leap some 30 feet. Kangaroos use their long tails for balancing. Their bodies are covered in thick, coarse, wooly hair that can be shades of gray, brown or red. Kangaroos are marsupials, which means that females carry newborns, or "joeys," in a pouch on the front of their abdomens.
SIZE: Red and gray kangaroos stand between five and six feet tall. Most weigh between 50 and 120 pounds, though some can reach 200 pounds. Female kangaroos are generally smaller than males of the same species. POPULATION: Macropus giganteus (eastern gray kangaroo): 8,978,000.
Macropus fuliginosus (western gray kangaroo): 1,774,000.

What do you call a Kangaroo?
A male kangaroo is called a buck, boomer, jack or old man. A female is a doe, flyer or jill. A young kangaroo is a joey (all marsupial young are called this). A kangaroo is often referred to as a 'roo. A group of kangaroos is generally a mob, but can be a troop or court. Kangaroos belong to a group of marsupials called macropods , which means 'great footed animals'. Macropods have strong back legs with long feet. They hop on their back legs when travelling, using the muscular tail as a balance. Hopping in this way is an energy-efficient way of travelling long distances. Their front legs are small. When moving slowly, usually as they graze or to change position, the tail and front legs prop up the animal, and the back legs move forward.. this is called 'crawl walking'.
Kangaroos are good swimmers, and will sometimes escape a threat by going into water if it is nearby. Kangaroos feed in the late afternoon and early morning, spending the day resting in shade. In hot weather they scrape the ground with their front paws and lie in the cooler earth they have exposed. Kangaroos do not sweat, so in the heat they lick their front paws and rub the moisture onto their chests to cool down.

About KangaROOS
1979...it all starts here. The jogging craze is sweeping the States and a guy named Bob Gamm needs a place to store his keys and change while he's out for his daily jog. As necessity is the mother of invention, Gamm came up with a design for an athletic shoe with a small zippered pocket.
The KangaROOS shoe was born.
Life was good in the ‘80s. Kids were cruising around blasting their boom box, listening to Madonna, Duran Duran and Culture Club. Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Froggy were the popular games at the arcade. Hair was big and some items were just plain essentials: leg warmers, shoulder pads and of course you had to have your KangaROOS. The brand was one of the top 10 US brands in the ‘80s and was the first to offer runners a real sports technology - the NASA tested Dynacoil cushioning system. KangaROOS footwear began appearing on a number of high profile US sports stars like baseball's Ron Darling

kangaroo
Dictionary: kan·ga·roo kăng gə-rū Home Library Dictionary n. pl. kangaroo , or -roos Any of various herbivorous marsupials of the family Macropodidae of Australia and adjacent islands, having short forelimbs, large hind limbs adapted for leaping, and a long tapered tail. [Guugu Yimidhirr (Aboriginal language of northeast Australia) ganjurru WORD HISTORY A widely held belief has it that the word kangaroo comes from an Australian Aboriginal word meaning "I don't know." This is in fact untrue. The word was first recorded in 1770 by Captain James Cook, when he landed to make repairs along the northeast coast of Australia. In 1820, one Captain Phillip K. King recorded a different word for the animal, written "mee-nuah." As a result, it was assumed that Captain Cook had been mistaken, and the myth grew up that what he had heard was a word meaning "I don't know" (presumably as the answer to a question in English that had not been understood). Recent linguistic fieldwork, however, has confirmed the existence of a word gangurru in the northeast Aboriginal language of Guugu Yimidhirr, referring to a species of kangaroo. What Captain King heard may have been their word

Introduction
Wacol kangaroos information
Male Eastern Grey Kangaroo The kangaroo: an Aussie icon
The kangaroo is an Australian icon. Its size, strength and speed are traits that make it a natural logo or emblem for Australian organisations and sporting clubs. It is also part of our national coat of arms. Kangaroos are also symbolic of another Australian trait: to stick up for yourself and not back down (with their large back feet and tail, kangaroos find it hard to move backwards). However, unlike their human counterparts, adult males fight their rivals to gain higher status within a local group or 'mob' and the dominant male will father the next generation of joeys. But many people see large male kangaroos as placid grazing animals. The reality is that they can be aggressive towards people. Although the risk of this happening is very small, we still need to be wary around them.

Kangaroos
So you've heard all about Kangaroos and you're wondering if you'll get to see them on your AUSSIE WALKABOUTS trip. Well the simple answer is YES! Kangaroos are very common in Australia and in some places are considered a pest. In western Australia for example, driving at night on the many highways is a dangerous occupation as kangaroos tend to bound across the road at a moments notice. Sometimes they become mesmerised by the headlights of oncoming cars can just sit there waiting for you to crash into them! Some of the larger kangaroos can do serious damage to a car and it's occupants if they collide at high speeds, it's because of this that many people opt to use what are known as roo bars. Essentially a roo bar is a metal grid that is put in front of the car to take the brunt of the force should you collide with a kangaroo. The scientific name for Kangaroos and Wallabies is 'Macropods' this means 'big foot' they are Marsupials which means they have pouches and they are Mammals which means they produce milk for their babies.

Kangaroos Kangaroos are the largest marsupials and inhabit forest and bushland in Australia and Tasmania. It has large hind legs, a strong tail, small forelegs, and long ears. They usually get around by hopping. Females have a pouch for carrying their young. The pregnancy may be as short as 25 days but the young are born prematurely so they must live in the pouch for up to eight months. Kangaroos live in Australia, Tasmania, New Guinea, and New Zealand. The largest is the gray kangaroo, which can be over 2 m (7 ft.) tall and almost 3 m (10 ft.) long. It can weigh 80 kg. (200 lbs.). Other members in the kangaroo family are red kangaroos, wallabies, and rat kangaroos. Back to Animals Back to the Main Page
