The Kangaroo Walk

 

 

The Kangaroo Walk

Kangaroos jump high in the sky
They jump so high I think they can fly
They have no wings like a bird or bee
They walk on the ground just like me

Kangaroos walk on the ground just like me
Kangaroos walk on the ground just like me

So, let’s do the kangaroo walk
So, let’s do the kangaroo walk

Kangaroos have two eyes to see
They can’t climb a tree like a monkey and me
They can’t make honey like a honey bee
They can’t swim like a fish in the big blue sea

Kangaroos walk on the ground just like me
Kangaroos walk on the ground just like me

So, let’s do the kangaroo walk
So, let’s do the kangaroo walk
So, let’s do the kangaroo walk
So, let’s do the kangaroo walk

Kangaroos walk on the ground like me
Kangaroos walk on the ground like me

All About Kangaroos

Kangaroos possess powerful hind legs, a long, strong tail, and small front legs. Kangaroos belong to the animal family Macropus, literally “big foot.” Thanks to their large feet, kangaroos can leap some 30 feet (9 meters) in a single bound, and travel more than 30 ​miles (48 ​kilometers)​ per hour​. Kangaroos use their strong tails for balance while jumping.​ They are the tallest of all marsupials, standing over 6 feet (2 meters) tall. ​

​Kangaroos live in Eastern Australia. They live in small groups called troops or herds (“mobs” by Australians), typically made up of 50 or more animals. If threatened, kangaroos pound the ground with their strong feet in warning. Fighting kangaroos kick opponents, and sometimes bite. ​

​Female kangaroos sport a pouch on their belly, made by a fold in the skin, to cradle baby kangaroos called joeys. Newborn joeys are just one inch long (2.5 centimeters) at birth, or about the size of a grape. After birth, joeys travel, unassisted, through their mom’s thick fur to the comfort and safety of the pouch. A newborn joey can’t suckle or swallow, so the kangaroo mom uses her muscles to pump milk down its throat. Kangaroo walk Song
