In Kangaroos' Lucky Escape, a rock-wallaby helps a mob of kangaroos escape the danger of a bushfire. Kangaroos and wallabies are all macropods (big-footed animals). They move by hopping, using their tails for balance.
Kangaroos live on grassy plains. Their agile cousin, the rock-wallaby, easily hops up and down the uneven slopes of its home in rocky, hilly country.
