Kangaroos cannot walk backwards. The shape of their body and the

length of their strong tail prohibits them from being able to step


In addition, their legs cannot move independently on land, only

when they swim. When walking, kangaroos support themselves with

their front legs and tail while they pull their hind legs along. It

is impossible for them to reverse this motion.
