Kangaroos are mainly hunted by man, who actively seeks to cull their numbers.

Dingoes and wedgetail eagles hunt kangaroos.

Introduced predators such as foxes, wild dogs and feral cats will hunt joeys.

Prior to the extinction of the thylacine (sometimes known as the Tasmanian Tiger), kangaroos would have had to defend themselves against this creature, the largest of the carnivorous marsupials.

Smaller kangaroos, such as wallabies, rat-kangaroos (not kangaroo rats), potoroos, pademelons and bettongs are hunted by quolls and pythons and, occasionally, goannas.
