Answer: Marwell Zoo near Southampton does indeed have kangaroos in the zoo. I think they had over 10 kangaroos there.

Answer: I was at Linton Zoo, just south of Cambridge with my two and a half year old boy and there was a single kangaroo there.
(James O’Brien: Maureen, how much research did you do for this question? Linton Zoo is only about 40 miles away!)
