Resourceful kangaroo

The kangaroo can't run or walk - but it can jump! It can leap 4,5m in one bound, and can race along in these leaps at up to 64km per hour. A kangaroo can leap along like this for about 32km without stopping to rest. The kangaroo's body is built so that it can't move its legs to walk or run. But those strong legs provide a powerful thrust when he leaps. The kangaroo's thick tail serves to balance it when he's in the air. A standing kangaroo would have little trouble leaping right over a car! -
