How Fast Can a Kangaroo Run?
A Red Kangaroo can comfortably hop at about 15 miles
per hour, but it has been clocked going up to 44 miles
per hour. It can also sustain a speed of 25 miles per
hour for a mile. Kangaroos can hop further than any
other animal on earth, leaping up to 25 feet in a single
hop. It is estimated they can jump over 10 feet vertically.
Kangaroos use their back legs to jump. They use their
thick tail for balance and power. Female kangaroos can
hop faster than male kangaroos.
