Red kangaroos are marsupials, mammals with a unique characteristic that they carry their young (joeys) in a pouch. They hop around on their powerful hind legs at great speeds and can jump very high.
- Kangaroos cannot walk forward or backward. They must jump or hop to move around.
- Kangaroos are the only bipedal marsupial that moves on two legs instead of all four.
- A group of kangaroos called a “mob” consists mostly of females with their offspring and one or two males.
