5 fascinating kangaroo facts
Here are five cool facts about these amazing creatures!
#1 Males are boastful and they love to show off.
Kangaroos like to show off. A recent study found that kangaroos with larger biceps are actually preferred by females for mating. Flex!
#2 Kangaroos and wallabies are two different species.
Kangaroos stand at 8 feet tall while wallabies look like miniature kangaroos reaching only 12-24 inches. Wallabies also have different dentures and brighter coloring.
#3 The kangaroo hop is considered the most efficient way to get around.
They are the largest animal known to use this way of transportation but that doesn’t mean they’re unable to move their legs independently. Kangaroos are known to swim as well, which is the only time their legs are not moving at the same time.
#4 Although kangaroos are symbolically linked to Australia, the remote continent isn’t the only place where they can be found.
However, their habitat doesn’t stretch too far. You can find some in New Guinea and Tasmania, which are pretty close by.
#5 Kangaroos have specific names based on their age and sex.
Males are called jacks or boomers while females are referred to as jills or flyers. A large group of kangaroos is a troop while a smaller one is called a colony. Finally, babies are joeys.
