Kangaroos

by Elysia Aquilina

Common animals found in Australia and neighbouring islands are the typical large kangaroos. They have sheep-like heads, large moveable ears, slender chest and heavy hind parts. They have short front legs with five equal digits and long powerful legs with tendons that act like springs for energy efficient hopping. A large kangaroo can cover a distance of 9 metres in a single leap. It pummels its attacker with forepaws and slashes with its powerful hind legs. The long muscular tail is used for support when the animal sits or walks and for balance when it leaps. Female kangaroos have particular pouches. They use it to carry their young which is called a Joey. The Joey stays in its motherís pouch from 5 to 9 months.
