Additional Information

Big male red kangaroo lying under an Australian flowering gum tree ,the DOTS represent the Australian bush land in which he lives

This species is a very large kangaroo with long, pointed ears and a squared-off muzzle

Males Red Kangaroos  grow up to a head-and-body length of 1.3–1.6 m (4.3–5.2 ft) with a tail that adds a further 1.2 to the total length

Its range encompasses scrub land, grassland, and desert habitats. It typically inhabits open habitats with some trees for shade.

Red kangaroos are capable of conserving enough water and selecting enough fresh vegetation to survive in an arid environment.

The problems dealing with the external heat load is much greater. The red kangaroos rely on their mobility to find nutritious, succulent food and the sparse shade of bushes. Red kangaroos are not found around rocky outcrops or caves, relying on the shade from small salt bushes and mulga bushes, where the temperature is usually 32-38oC, with humidity of about 20 %, when the solar radiation reaches 60oC. Evaporation cooling is enabled by the airflow under the bushes, the large subcutaneous veins of the forearms allowing the blood to dissipate heat to the passing air. Big Red Kangaroos  also keep activity to a minimum, and they may stand under the shelter, with their tail drawn under them, to get it out of the sunlight, while allowing the air to circulate around their bodies. Their pale colour also aids by reflecting part of the sunlight. The fur of the red kangaroo is finer, as well as being more than 3 times as dense as that of the euro, about 62 fibers / mm2 compared with the 20 fibres/mm2 of the euro. This fur increases the insulation of the fur by a large amount, in windy conditions, whether the weather is hot or cools (Dawson & Brown, 1970).

These mechanisms reduce the heat load and the need for evaporative cooling, which also saves water. When further cooling is necessary there are 3 ways of achieving evaporative cooling, used when the air temperature is high or they have been active, panting, sweating and spreading saliva on the skin of their forearms. Panting is the most important of these methods of heat reduction.for the Red Kangaroo of Australia
