When did the giant kangaroo go extinct and why?

    The Giant Kangaroo, in addition to other Australian prehistoric animals, went extinct 40,000 years ago. The two most popular explanations have been climate change and the arrival of Aboriginal settlers, the latter of which were guilty of either overhunting or burning the plants upon which the kangaroos fed. However, recent research showing that the Australian prehistoric animal populations had thrived during similar climatic conditions has ruled out climate as the culprit, leaving human intervention as the most likely cause.
