What a Kangaroo’s Foot Looks Like
A kangaroo’s huge rear leg is shown in the image below. Kangaroos have four or five toes on each foot. The first toe is tiny, and the second and third toes are joined together. Kangaroos have a kicking strength of more than 800 pounds per square inch (PSI).
The second toe, with the huge and formidable claw, is important for the Kangaroo in providing traction when it hops. Grooming purposes are served by the joined toes. The Kangaroo’s lengthy Achilles tendons also store elastic energy and aid in the animal’s ability to jump.
