Kangaroo Behavior

Kangaroos are social animals. They live in groups called mobs of up to 100 kangaroos. Most kangaroos are nocturnal (active at night). Kangaroos are the only large animals to use hopping as a way of movement. They have very good hearing, eyesight and sense of smell. Kangaroos are herbivores. They eat grass, leaves, and roots. Kangaroos swallow the food without chewing it. Later they regurgitate a cud and chew it.
