袋鼠在澳大利亚很常见的动物。它们有强有力的后腿,大大的脚更适合跳跃,还有一条长长的尾巴保持平衡,以及一个比较小的头。
Kangaroos are endemic to the country of Australia. They have large, powerful hind1 legs, large feet adapted for leaping, a long muscular tail for balance, and a small head. Female kangaroos have a pouch2 called a marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development.
 
Large kangaroos have adapted to changes brought to the Australian landscape by humans and though many of their smaller cousins are endangered, they are plentiful3. They are not farmed to any extent, but wild kangaroos are shot for meat, leather hides, and to protect grazing land for sheep and cattle.
 
The kangaroo is an unofficial symbol of Australia, and appears as an emblem4 on the Australian coat of arms, on some of its currency, as well as by some of Australia's well known organisations, including Qantas, Australia's largest airline, and the Royal Australian Air Force. The kangaroo is important to both Australian culture and the national image.
