About the Kangaroo

The kangaroo is an amazing animal with unique physical characteristics and behavior. Let’s look at some interesting facts about this fascinating mammal as well as learn how to identify a kangaroo.

Kangaroos are mammals that resemble large hopping rats and live in central Australia, New Guinea, and some parts of Asia.

They are the largest terrestrial animals in the world and can jump up to 36 ft or 10m high. Kangaroos have hind legs that closely resemble those of a human but their front legs work like dogs.

Kangaroos also have huge feet that act as a platform for their powerful tail which help them to support their own weight and jump high. Kangaroos are herbivores and subsist on grasses, plants, flowers and some tree leaves.

The kangaroo’s black tail is very important for its balance so it would be wise for a predator to attack its head instead (if he can catch it in the first place, of course).
