The kangaroo is a marsupial from the family Macropodidae (macropods, meaning 'large foot'). In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, the red kangaroo, as well as the antilopine kangaroo, eastern grey kangaroo, and western grey kangaroo. Kangaroos are indigenous to Australia and New Guinea. The Australian government estimates that 42. 8 million kangaroos lived within the commercial harvest areas of Australia in 2019, down from 53. 2 million in 2013. As with the terms 'wallaroo' and 'wallaby', 'kangaroo' refers to a paraphyletic grouping of species. All three refer to members of the same taxonomic family, Macropodidae, and are distinguished according to size. The largest species in the family are called 'kangaroos' and the smallest are generally called 'wallabies'. The term 'wallaroos' refers to species of an intermediate size. There are also the tree-kangaroos, another type of macropod, which inhabit the tropical rainforests of New Guinea, far northeastern Queensland and some of the islands in the region. A general idea of the relative size of these informal terms could be:wallabies: head and body length of 45105 cm and tail length of 3375 cm, the dwarf wallaby (the smallest of all known macropod species) is 46 cm long and weighs 1. 6 kg,tree-kangaroos: ranging from Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo: body and head length of 4865 cm, tail of 6074 cm, weight of 7. 2 kg (16 lb) for males and 5. 9 kg (13 lb) for females, to the grizzled tree-kangaroo: length of 7590 cm (30 to 35 in) and weight of 815 kg (1833 lb),wallaroos: the black wallaroo (the smallest of the two species) with a tail length of 6070 cm and weight of 1922 kg (41. 848. 5 lb) for males and 13 kg (28. 6 lb) for females,kangaroos: a large male can be 2 m (6 ft 7 in) tall and weigh 90 kg (200 lb). Kangaroos have large, powerful hind legs, large feet adapted for leaping, a long muscular tail for balance, and a small head. Like most marsupials, female kangaroos have a pouch called a marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development.
