Kangaroo: The Animal With The Strong Maternal Filter

Another wonderful creation of nature that deserves to know a few facts about its life.

The kangaroo is a marsupial found in Australia and New Guinea. It belongs to the macropod family, which includes 63 species. There are four species, the "antilopine" kangaroo, the red kangaroo, the western gray kangaroo and the eastern gray kangaroo.

Their main features are the muscular tails, the strong and large legs, and their long and pointed ears. It is worth noting that females have pouches that contain mammary glands where their babies live until it is time for them to become independent.

The ancient word marsipos means to sack. These animals were named marsupials because of the sac that the female has in her womb. In this purse, the little one grows up in the first months of his life. There he finds his mother's safety and milk - his mother's nipples are in the purse.

Kangaroo: The Animal With The Strong Maternal Filter

The mother is quite attached to her baby, like most mammals. The little kangaroo, like many other animals, when it comes to adulthood finds it difficult to realize it and many times, although very physically developed, tries to get into his mother's purse. But the effort was in vain because the time has come for him to follow the education provided by his mother and to be able to survive on his own.

The first European to see a kangaroo was the Dutch sailor Francisco Pelsart in 1629 when his ship sank off the coast of Australia. They took their name from the English seafarer James Cook. When Cook arrived in Australia in 1770, he spotted the animal and asked the natives what it was called. They replied: "Kan gu ro", which means "up and down".

The name of the kangaroo in the language of the Indigenous people is gollar. What Cook had seen were the gulls as the natives call them, and they also belong to the macropod family.
