Kangaroos cannot jump or walk backwards.
Kangaroos have large feet and a big tail which stops them being able to jump or walk backwards. Another reason they can’t go backwards is they are not capable of moving each leg independently. Unless they are swimming. And they are very good swimmers.
But we have seen one or two rare videos where a kangaroo is playing and doing zoomies, and they can go backwards! But it’s not common to see!
Here are a few other fun facts about kangaroos.
