A kangaroo is a marsupial from the relations Macropodidae. In widespread use the term is used to explain the main species from this kin, the Red Kangaroo, the Antilopine Kangaroo, and the Eastern and Western Grey Kangaroo of the Macropus type. The family too includes many slighter species which include the wallabies, tree-kangaroos, wallaroos, pademelons and the Quokka, some 63 livelihood species in all. In general, better kangaroos have tailored much better to changes shaped to the Australian scenery by humans, as many of their slighter cousins are endangered.

However in attendance is considerable controversy over young of kangaroos for meat. Kangaroos are prevalent to the continent of Australia, while the lesser macropods are found in Australia and New Guinea. They are restricted to the island of Australia because it has been cut off from the rest of the world. It is quite separate and away so they are not moving towards other regions as well. Hope it must be clear now.

Australia split off from the great landmass called Gondwanaland, some 60 million years ago, due to continental drift.

As a result, marsupial speciation expanded significantly in Australia compared with other countries.

The kangaroo is one marsupial genus, but there are many others.

Nobody except the Aboriginal people knew kangaroos existed until about 200 years ago. The first Australian explorers and settlers saw them then for the first time.The kangaroo, of course, has a pouch, and in Australia many mammals have pouches. Australia and its neighboring island are where most of the pouched animals have been found.
Pouched animals form the order of mammals called "the marsupials". This name comes from the Latin word marsupium, which means "pouch".

The first mammals appeared more than 100,000,000 years ago, during the Age of Dinosaurs. Some of these were marsupial, and some were "placental". A placental mammal supplies food to the unborn young within the mother's body. In marsupial mammals, the pouch serves this purpose. The young are born very tiny and develop in the mother's pouch. When the earth's climate changed, the dinosaurs died out. The mammals multiplied and developed in many ways. They became the ruling animals of the earth. But the placenta] mammals were more successful than the marsupials. Their brains were superior, and it was also better for the young to develop inside the mother's body than in a pouch.
In most parts of the world the marsupials disappeared. They could not compete for living places with the other mammals. But this did not happen in Australia and South America,
Scientists believe that Australia was once linked to South-Eastern Asia. This may have been with a chain of islands or an isthmus. So marsupials spread into Australia at a time when there were no advanced placental mammals there. They did not have any competition, so they flourished and evolved in many forms.

Because kangaroos are marsupial animals and they more or less like the heat than other sorts of places

Kangaroos live in Australia because they adapt to the environment of Australia. Kangaroos eat stuff that are found in Australia that's why they're there.

It's simple really. More food for kangaroos in Australia more kangaroos live there. Kangaroos might also like hot climates that's why they're there.
thanked the writer.

For example are polar bears. They live in the north pole because it's cold there and they have thick furs. and there are a lot of food for them there...
