Description

Whenever someone considers owning an exotic animal as a pet, the first question they usually ask is, "Would an (insert name of species here) make a good pet?" The truth is, as most experts agree, the question should be "Would I make a good owner of an (insert name of species here)? Ideally, the prospective owner of an exotic pet should seriously consider the needs of the animal and whether or not they can fulfill those needs. It is only after thoughtful consideration of these needs and possible extenuating circumstances should a possible owner look into owning such a pet.

 

Keeping and breeding kangaroos is definitely not for everyone, but we love it! Kangaroos need plenty of room to run and graze. Roos are not house pets, they don’t ride in cars, walk on leashes or do tricks. They are shy and easily stressed in strange situations. We bottle rear our animals as they tend to be friendlier and more affectionate with people, but they will not come when they are called and they need to be kept in a secure environment at all time.

 

HOUSING

Kangaroos and wallabies are surprisingly hardy in cold temperatures. They will adapt if they can aclimatize over the course of the fall and grow a good winter coat. We build low bunks that the roos can hop up on that have shavings for bedding. They like raised beds. Once the temperature dips below zero in their house, we add enough heat lamps to keep their water barely defrosted. You don’t want to over-do the heat. Animals that go from hot to cold and back again don’t do so well. Our building is big enough to accomodate all our roos comfortably. Building more than one shelter in the same pen will not work as the roos will insist on all sleeping together.

 

FENCING

Most people assume that a roo will try and get over a fence. This is generally untrue. Roos usually try to get under or through a fence. Fencing should be at least 6 ft high and tight to the ground. It’s best to either bury the fence or peg it down. Wire should be heavy guage and no bigger than 2″ x 4″ mesh. Roos are extremely nosy. If there is a flaw in the fencing, the roo WILL find it. The fence is only as strong as its weakest point. Any trees that might come down on the fence should be removed. GATES NEED TO BE KEPT LOCKED. Security is very important. As far as enclosure size, that really depends on the quality of grazing and the number of animals. Generally speaking, if the number of animals in the pen are not overgrazing the area and they have enough room to run and exercise properly, the pen is large enough. A pen for one animal certainly should not be smaller than 50′ x 50′ at a very bare minimum and it should all be in pasture. These are the guidelines we follow for our Roo enclosure.

 

FEEDING

Before you ask, yes those are dog beds in the picture. Roos are definitely creatures of comfort. They also like to get up high like a goat. That’s why we put the beds on that little rise. Roos are browsers. That means they like to graze but they also like to nibble on brush. This is essential to the health of their digestive tract and teeth. They also enjoy trimmings from an organic orchard or willow boughs. They love to chew on those. We make sure our pasture is not too wet. If there are muddy areas, we eliminate them as they will become a reservoir for bacteria. Roos continually groom themselves and having them ingesting large quantities of bacteria laden dirt is not a good thing. We feed a good quality brood mare pellet to our roos. Some breeders prefer goat tex. Roos have very similar digestive tracts to alpacas. Feed a good quality hay in the winter along with greens such as apples and carrots. Roos are not “piggy” eaters. Food doesn’t have to be rationed. We put an entire bag of feed in an automatic hopper.
