They have long, powerful legs that allow them to run up to 45 miles per hour, making them the fastest bird on land.

Their unique body structure allows them to hop at high speeds and leap large distances. Kangaroos have a small head, large ears, and a pouch for carrying their young, known as joeys. The color of their coat varies from grey to brown or red, depending on the species.

Fun Fact: Kangaroos are known for their unique method of locomotion; they can't walk on all four limbs, instead, they use hopping as their primary means of getting around, which allows them to cover great distances efficiently.

Key Differences between Ostrich and Kangaroo

Ostriches are significantly larger than Kangaroos, have long necks, and run at high speeds, while Kangaroos have a compact body structure, hop as their primary mode of locomotion, and have a muscular tail used for balance and support.
  1. HIND LEGS AND LOCOMOTION: Ostriches have exceptionally powerful and long hind legs, enabling them to run at high speeds reaching up to 40-45 miles per hour (64-72 kilometers per hour). Kangaroos, while also possessing strong hind legs, have adapted for jumping and hopping as their primary mode of locomotion.
  2. Size: The Ostrich is notably larger than the Kangaroo, with adult Ostriches reaching heights of up to 9 feet (2.7 meters) and weighing around 220-350 pounds (100-160 kilograms), whereas Kangaroos typically stand around 3-6 feet (0.9-1.8 meters) tall and weigh between 30-200 pounds (14-90 kilograms).
  3. Tail AND Tail USE: Ostriches have short, fluffy tails that are often held upright during mating displays or when agitated. Kangaroos have a muscular, thick tail used for balance and support during hopping, as well as for propping themselves up while sitting or resting.
  4. Body Shape: Ostriches have a distinctive shape, characterized by their long, slender necks, large bodies, and strong, muscular legs. Kangaroos, on the other hand, have a compact body structure with a stout tail, powerful hind legs, and shorter front limbs.
  5. FEATHERS VS. FUR: Ostriches are covered in distinct, soft feathers that are typically brown or gray in color. Kangaroos, however, possess fur that varies in color depending on the species, ranging from reddish-brown and gray to lighter shades.
  6. HEAD AND BEAK: Ostriches have a small head with large eyes and a pointed, flat beak. In contrast, Kangaroos have a more elongated head with a narrower snout and a well-developed herbivorous dentition.
