Kangaroo: Portrait of an Extraordinary Marsupial
This book tells the story of Australia's most famous marsupial, from its ancient origins and prehistoric significance to current-day management and conservation. It examines the sustained fascination with kangaroos - spanning 40,000 years - that allows these engaging marsupials to be instantly recognised by people the world over. The amazing diversity of this group of animals is revealed, ranging from tiny forest dwellers and tree kangaroos to large majestic animals living on the open plains of central Australia and the giant kangaroos that once roamed the Pleistocene landscape.
The authors also investigate the natural history of kangaroos - their unique reproduction methods, intriguing behaviour, varied diet and trademark hopping ability - all of which make them such fascinating animals.
