This kangaroo is licking itself to dissipate heat.  It was nearly 110 F when this photo was taken!

This Red Kangaroo is hiding in the shade from the sun as most Kangaroos are nocturnal and forage at night for food and water.

                     Maybe a dingo ate your . . . kangaroo!  Besides humans, the Dingo is one of the only predators of the Red Kangaroo.

The Koala Bear is another example of a marsupial, but it has an inverted pouch while a kangaroo's pouch is right-side up.
