Kangaroos, smaller wallabies and similar marsupials are found all over Australia and at times reach plague proportions.

When born, the young marsupials find their way to their mother's pouch and live there until they are weaned - venturing more and more often into the wider world beyond the pouch as they grow bigger and stronger.

The young 'roo is known as a 'Joey' and can often be seen with its head poking inquisitively from the mother's pouch
