Red kangaroos live in the arid plains of central Australia and are the largest surviving marsupials anywhere in the world - they can grow taller than a full grown man! Marsupials give birth to their babies early and then carry them in protected pouches until they can survive on their own. Red kangaroos' babies, or joeys, remain in their mother's pouches for up to a year while she nurses and nurtures them. Red kangaroos are herbivores; this means they only eat plants. All Schleich figures are hand-painted with detailed modelling. 3+ years.
