Kangaroos have paws. They are sometimes used to grasp food, and they also provide balance for when a kangaroo moves at a slow, four-legged walk, instead of its usual hopping motion.
The kangaroo's tail plays a vital role in balancing the animal, both when it is bounding along, and when it is just walking slowly. Kangaroos cannot move their legs independently (except when swimming), so the tail plays a vital role in helping the kangaroo to balance as it moves.
The kangaroo is least like the others because it is the only animal in the list that moves on two legs, with its tail forming integral balance.
The kangaroo's tail is long because it is used for balance. Without a tail, a kangaroo cannot hop. When hopping quickly, the tail assists the kangaroo's balance and functions as a rudder. When walking, the kangaroo uses its tail as an extra limb. When it walks slowly, it puts its tail on the ground, which provides necessary propulsion to move forwards, and moves its hind legs forward, although these limbs cannot move independently of each other. When bending over to eat, a kangaroo has its tail on the ground for balance. The tail is also used to provide balance when the kangaroo sits.
The term "flyer" is a reference to the speed at which an adult female kangaroo moves. A kangaroo in full flight is a picture of speed and grace, and because a female is lighter than a male, she will react more quickly and can move along at even greater speed, seeming to "fly" along the ground.
The young baby kangaroo (joey) is born in a very immature state, but moves into the mother's pouch and attaches to a nipple to continue it's development. A human baby is born in a more mature state.
