    • KANGAROOS
    • THE KANGAROO’S LONG LEGS The Kangaroo’s long legs is a Structural adaptation, meaning – relating to an it’s shape, size or structure. The adaptation is the long legs of the kangaroo, which allow it to move agilely and rapidly without using much energy, through Australia’s harsh land conditions. The adaptation helps the kangaroo get away from any oncoming predators, and conserve energy while hopping for any purpose.
