Kangaroos are fascinating animals.  You should see them hop!

 

 

Kangaroos can be up to 180 cm (6 feet) in height and travel 70 km per hour (40 mph).  This one is not at all shy.

I saw this group of kangaroos resting in the shade during the afternoon heat.  Look at the one on the left!

 

 

Kangaroos come in different sizes and colors.  There three main varieties of Kangaroos -- Red Kangaroo (Macropus Rufus), Eastern Grey Kangaroo (Macropus Giganteus) and Western Grey Kangaroo (Macropus Fuliginosus)

In the background you can see a Kangaroo hopping.  The best way to make friends is by feeding them.
