    jump long or jump far or both?

    Dear native speaker teachers:

    I hear an Australian teachers say:" A kangoroo can jump long." My question is why he said " jump long instead of jump far" ? I know we can say " jump long distance", but can we say jump long ? Maybe , both ways are correct ? Thanks in advance!
