Red Kangaroo (Macropus rufus) – Australia. The male is red and the female is grayish, a good way to tell them apart. Because of the females bluish-gray color, some Australians call the females “blue flyers”.
 When the Kangaroos hop, they move with speed and grace. They spring across the ground with huge leaps. The Kangaroo can travel about 35 miles per hour for short distances.
 The baby Wallaby is called a Joey. The female have pouches, as the kangaroo does, where the young joey keeps on growing for another six months after they are born.
