Kangaroo and her joey (baby)

Kangaroos live on deserts and grasslands. They are active when temperatures are low.

Kangaroos eat mostly grass and small plants. Their predators are Dingoes, which are like large dogs. When a Dingo is near, a baby joey hides in its mother's pouch.

Kangaroos live in Australia, New Guinea, and nearby islands.
