Pet kangaroos cost between $2000 and $3000 in 2011, with exotic kinds costing somewhat more. Kangaroos are not normally recommended as pets due to their big size. Due to their tiny stature, some exotic animal producers suggest wallabies.
A kangaroo’s price can vary depending on its age, size, species, and colour. White kangaroos and wallabies, for example, are rarer than brown or red kangaroos and command a greater premium. Because many adult kangaroos are sold to zoos, joeys are also slightly less expensive than adults. Kangaroos are more expensive to care for than most pets because they are exotic creatures.
