Phoenix Zoo: Kangaroo Rat Race

The kangaroo rat is a mammal common to our southwestern U.S. deserts as well as other deserts around the world.

The life of a kangaroo rat is never easy, but they have many adaptations that allow them to live in the harsh environments where they are found. They get all the water they need from the seeds that they eat, hide in their cool burrows during the hot day, and to avoid predators: leap, kick up sand, and thump their feet.

For this game, we will be living the life of a kangaroo rat. Let’s see if you can hop to victory!
