Kangaroo picturesKangaroo is a famous exotic animal from distant continent Australia. We know that there are many kinds of kangaroos but most known is a big herbivorous creature with narrow shoulders little elongated head and very strong tale and hind legs. Being disturbed it jumps and moves very quickly. Kangaroo is coward but sometimes  it can show courage (when damaged or protecting the offspring).
In common it`s body looks like  cone, I would say like a brown  pyramid among high grass. Another interesting similarity is with T. Rex giant and very dangerous dinosaur that walked on hind legs and almost did not use the front paws.
