Kangaroos are the national animal of Australia, a label made official when the marsupial appeared on the country’s coat of arms in 1908. These beautiful creatures are known for their extraordinary leaping abilities, with some able to bound up to 35 feet through the air. They also can leap up to 10 feet high. Kangaroos have incredibly strong back legs that allow them to reach such heights, and their impressive tails enable them to maintain balance while in flight.
