The mini kangaroos in this video are actually known as “brush kangaroos” – but that name hardly describes how cute the little rascals are. Curtain up for two special kind of hopping marsupials.
The young animals seen in this cute little film are part of a species protection project to preserve the breed. Unfortunately, this Australian marsupial species is highly endangered and has a hard time in its homeland due to natural enemies and food competitors on the one hand, and changes to its habitat by humans on the other.
Incidentally, with a size of just 28 to 45 centimeters and a weight of between one and two kilograms, the cute brush kangaroos are fully grown and can reach a proud age of eleven years. It’s nice that animal lovers have taken on the task of preserving this breed – their goal is to promote their spread in the wild again.
