Summer in Australia, which is in the southern hemisphere, takes place in the months of December, January and February. Hot days, endless blue skies and beautiful beaches are a hallmark of this season.
The Red Kangaroo is the most iconic of all Australia's animals, instantly recognised as a symbol of Australia. Red kangaroos (Macropus rufus) are large animals with extremely long and powerful hind legs and feet. Their tail is also long and muscular but their front limbs are short.
When moving fast they hop on their hind legs, using their tail as a counterbalance, and when moving slowly they use their tail as an extra limb, taking their weight on their front limbs and tail while hopping their hind feet forwards.
Their fur is soft and reddish brown (greyer in females). They have quite long muzzles and rather large ears, making their heads look a bit like those of deer.
