Red Kangaroo Information
There's nothing like kangaroos on a ranch in Texas! They thrive exceptionally well here in our climate since Texas and Australia are so similar.
Kangaroos are the largest marsupials located in grasslands, plains, deserts, and forested areas in most of Australia. They are identified by their muscular tails, strong back legs, large feet, short fur and long, pointed ears. Like all marsupials, a sub-type of mammal, females have pouches that contain mammary glands, where their young live until they are old enough to emerge.
