    Almost!

    "Aside from the kangaroo's mode of locomotion, I admire their ability to support themselves on their tails and to kick simultaneously with both back feet."

    When talking about a whole species, it's normal to refer to the animal in the singular.  

    'Theirs'  is wrong - just 'their tails' is correct.

    You shouldn't put a comma before 'and' in a sentence like that.

    A kangaroo has four feet but they only use their back legs/feet to kick.

    You don't need to say 'their feet'.  Just 'feet' is correct.

    Yes it's fine but there's no apostrophe when spelling kangaroos'.
