There are at least 69 different species of kangaroos. The animals, which have become a symbol of Australia, only exist naturally there and in Papua New Guinea, despite having been introduced in New Zealand, Great Britain and Hawaii. All species have one thing in common, powerful hind legs, which are used to make their little jumps, typical of the friendly jumper, which is only imitated by a species of rodent. This form of locomotion uses less energy than traditional mammalian four-legged walking, but it also develops less speed. These marsupials cannot walk by moving their legs independently – which is why they jump – they only do so when swimming. So when they want to walk slowly, they stand on their front legs, swinging them along with their tail to the sides, like a pendulum, while pushing themselves forward with their hind legs.
