I think Australia has the best wildlife, don’t you? Koalas, wallabies, and my favorite, the kangaroo, are all native to Australia. Kangaroos are most known for jumping, rather than walking, and they have super strong legs. Did you know they can go up to 30 miles an hour, and their leap can cover a distance of up to 30 feet!

Also, when female kangaroos have babies, the baby, called a joey, stays in a pouch in their mom’s stomach. How cool is that? I know a lot of moms who would like to keep their babies in a pouch so they could have their hands free!! Typically, kangaroos can be a little aggressive, and they definitely don’t back down from a fight.

They stomp their feet to warn others when they feel threatened. In a fight, they can use their strong legs to kick, but they also use their tails and teeth to hit and bite their opponent! Kangaroos should absolutely not be messed with! However, this little kangaroo has a softer side and just wants to be loved.
