Kangaroo, common name for a group of mammals found in Australia and neighboring islands. Kangaroos are marsupials, a type of mammal that gives birth to undeveloped young. In Kangaroos and many other marsupials, the young are carried and nurtured in a special pouch on the mother's body. The largest Kangaroos are the gray Kangaroo and red Kangaroo, which can stand up to 2 m (6.5 ft) tall and weigh up to 85 kg (187 lbs). The smallest are the musky Rat Kangaroos, rat-like animals measuring about 30 cm (12 in), not including the tail. The leaps of some Kangaroos are legendary. Red Kangaroos moving at top speeds can cover 5 m (16 ft) or more in a single bound. They are able to reach speeds of more than 50 km/h (31 mph) for short periods. The Kangaroo's heavy, muscular tail is also important for locomotion. It serves as a counterbalance and a rudder during hopping, and provides support when the animal sits.
The Kangaroo’s leap attack, coupled with an extremely powerful melee attack on its back legs makes this creature simply brutal in close combat. Combine this creature with other effective close combat creatures and stand back.
