- A medium-sized creature that can be found hopping through the grassland.
Kangaroos are a species of creature found in temperate and desert biomes, spawning in groups of 2–4 individuals. While bigger than a dwarf, these animals are benign and do little but meander around aimlessly, fleeing from dwarves who provoke them, and only rarely defending themselves with punches, potent kicks and bites. Males of the species are called kangaroo bucks, females are called kangaroo does and babies are called kangaroo joeys.
Kangaroos can be captured in cage traps and trained into pets. They are grazers; and therefore require a pasture to survive after being trained, but are distinct for being one of the only exotic sources of milk and cheese (the other being the tapir). They provide a good amount of returns when butchered, being large enough to produce prepared organs when adults. They reach their full size at 2 years of age, and therefore should be butchered at that point, if so wished, for maximum returns.
Some dwarves like kangaroos for their pouches and their great leaps.
