Australia is a floating laboratory whose ancient origins, continental drift and changing climate forced its inhabitants to evolve and adapt, culminating in over 200 species of pouched marsupials. The story of Australia's iconic red kangaroo and how it evolved to survive and thrive in the desert, represents the journey of its many marsupial cousins, which are all equipped with astounding survival features and behaviours enabling them to dominate every niche across this vast continent.
