Threats to Kangaroos
Humans hunt kangaroos for their meat and hides. Also, the introduction of domestic herbivores, such as sheep, cattle and rabbits increases competition for many plants and may cause food scarcity in times of drought.
Height: Red and gray kangaroos stand between five and six feet tall.
Weight: Most weigh between 50 and 120 pounds, though some can reach 200 pounds.
Lifespan: On average, kangaroos live in the wild for six to eight years.
Female kangaroos are generally smaller than males of the same species.
