Discover what Australia's beloved kangaroo is really like as National Geographic takes you from lush rain forest to rugged outback for an up close encounter with kangaroos and the spectacular land down under! Witness the amazing diversity of these remarkable creatures and see how kangaroos have evolved during 60 million years of isolation on the spectacular Australian continent. Follow a kangaroo "joey" from "life in a pouch" to the trials of adulthood. Experience the kangaroo's constant struggle to cope with its outback enemies, from wild dingoes and wedge-tailed eagles to human hunters. From Olympic-caliber jumping giants to gravity-defying cliff dwellers, this is the definitive look at these wonders of natural engineering known as Australia's Kangaroos.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
