faqs about our animals

Where are kangaroos from?
  • Bennett’s wallabies are originally from Tasmania, an island state off the southern coast of Australia. Our wallabies at Cobb’s are born and raised Canadians! About 30 years ago, kangaroos and wallabies were being culled in many areas of Australia and New Zealand. A Canadian adopted many of these animals and built a sanctuary for them to live in! This is where our wallabies are from!
  • Red Kangaroos live throughout central Australia. 
What do Kangaroos eat?
  • Their vegetarian diet consists mainly of grasses, herbs and leaves.
How big do kangaroos get?
  • Bennett’s Wallabies grow to be about 3 feet tall and can grow to be as heavy as 20 kg.
  • Red Kangaroos grow to be about 3-7 feet tall and can grow to be as heavy as 50kg.
How old do kangaroos get?
  • They generally live to be about 12 years old but can sometimes live to be over 15 years old!
Is it warm enough for kangaroos in Canada?
  • The Bennett’s Wallaby has the densest coat of all the kangaroos, making it a successful resident in cooler climates. It actually snows in Tasmania, where they are originally from (they also have a nice, warm house at Cobb’s)!
Are kangaroos and wallabies the same?
  • Wallabies are part of the kangaroo family – Macropodidae – which includes kangaroos, wallabies, tree-kangaroos, pademelons, quokkas, and several other macropod marsupials.
  • Marsupials are mammals that bear their young at a premature stage in their development and raise their infant to a juvenile stage in an anatomical pouch. Some marsupials include: kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, opposums, sugar gliders, wombats
  • Macropod means “Big Foot” –  Macropods have large hind feet, long powerful tails, relatively small heads, large ears and on the females, forward opening pouches.
How many different animals can we visit at cobbs?
  • There are over 15 different types of animals at Cobb’s , and over 100 animals in total!
