Kangaroo is a common name used to denote some of the approximately 60 species in the macropod family. The most common is the red kangaroo and the gray kangaroo.
They vary in size: the smallest species of hare kangaroo can weigh 1 kg, while the largest of the genus Macropus can exceed 90 kg.
The tail, long and muscular, is used both as a support and to balance the body during jumps. The front legs end in five toes, used for grasping food and clinging.
In the feet, the first toe is missing while the second and third toes are united by syndactyly, as in all Diprotodonts, and the fourth is the strongest and most developed.
The dentition contains only four incisors: the two lower ones are more developed than the upper ones, and in chewing, they hit a complicated palate area.
Based on fossil finds, it is assumed that kangaroos appeared in Australia about 15 million years ago. They live in Australia, New Guinea, Tasmania, and neighboring islands.
