What Kind of Noise Does a Kangaroo Make?

What Kind of Noise Does a Kangaroo Make?

The most commonly heard noise made by a kangaroo is the sound of its feet thumping the ground as it bounds away!

Keep reading for the complete answer to the above mentioned question what kind of noise does a kangaroo make?

The Kangaroo doesn’t make many sounds at all. The adults sometimes make soft clucking noises when they come near each other. Female Kangaroos also use this clucking sound to call their young.

When disturbed, Kangaroos make a low growl or a loud cough. When a kangaroo senses danger, it alerts others by loudly thumping its feet on the ground. During aggressive altercations with others, kangaroos also often produce piercing screaming sounds.

Kangaroos are marsupials, which means their young grow up in a pouch on the mother’s body. A baby Kangaroo is called a Joey.

When it is born, it crawls into its mother’s pouch for six months or so. When the Joey is too large for the pouch, it will learn to hop around just like its parents.

Do Kangaroos scream? When a kangaroo growls, it’s a sign for the offending party to back off — and back off immediately. If the “growlee” doesn’t go away, the kangaroo may just physically attack — yikes. During aggressive altercations with others, kangaroos also often produce piercing “screaming” sounds.

Kangaroos ‘scared by own noise’ Australian farmers could be about to get an unusual new weapon to protect their crops from kangaroos. Researchers in Melbourne have found that they can be scared off by the thumping sound of their own large feet on the ground.
