Kangaroo facts for kids

Hey guys, we are back with our fun facts, and today there are three fun facts, one bonus fact (for those who love collective nouns), two awesomely terrible mum jokes and lots of giggles! Enjoy

Can kangaroos swim? Yes, kangaroos are actually excellent swimmers, and they can use their large feet to propel themselves through the water with the help of their large tails. The ability to swim also comes in handy as a form of defence. If under attack, the kangaroo can enter the water, and if the animal is attacking the kangaroo, for example, a dog enters the water, the kangaroo will then try to drown it.

Can kangaroos walk backwards? No, they can't because their large tails get in the way and because of the shape of their feet.

What do kangaroos eat? Kangaroos are herbivores, and they like to chew on grasses, herbs and shrubs. This is also where they get a lot of the water from too.

What do you call a group of kangaroos? A group of kangaroos can be called a mob, troup or a herd.

What do you get when you cross an alien with a kangaroo? A MARS-upial.

What do you get when you cross a kangaroo with a sheep? A woolly jumper.

Facts about the emu

Facts about the emu

Hey there, Luka and I had an emu-sing time chatting about the emu.

Can the emu fly?

Emus are one of the largest birds on earth. They're very heavy birds with little wings which means they can't fly. There are other flightless birds such as the kiwi, ostrich, cassowary and penguin.

How fast can emus run?

Emus may not fly, but they can run very fast, up to 48 kmph (28mph), and their little wings help them keep their balance.

How long can emus go without food and water? After the female emu lays her eggs, the male emu sits on the eggs for 2 months. He doesn't eat, drink or leave during this time.

What do you call a group of emus?

A group of emus is called a mob. The same collective noun for a group of kangaroos.
