The animal of the day is the Red Kangaroo. (Did you know: These hopping marsupials can reach up to 40mph! And they can jump obstacles of up to 10ft.
As with koalas, a group of kangaroos is called a mob, so you KNOW they’re some gangstas. These desert dwelling mammals are able to go months without water as they get most of that from the plants they eat.
When European settlers first encountered the kangaroo, they saw some joeys poking their heads out from their mothers pouches, and they originally thought that kangaroos were two-headed!
Silly Europeans! (Though these were the same type of guys who landed in Massachusetts and thought it was India…)
Oh, and there’s always been some confusion on how marsupials have their babies. They’re born very underdeveloped, but crawl to their pouch and hook onto a nipple to drink milk and develop.
