This article is about an older version of DF.
A medium-sized creature that can be found hopping through the grassland.

Kangaroos are mid-sized grazing animals. They produce low value meat and have a fairly low pet value (the same as sheep), making them hardly worth the trouble of taming. Like most mammals, they can be milked. Interestingly, they are classed as humanoids, rather than quadrupeds.

In real life, kangaroos are frequently harvested for their meat and leather.[1]
