Step 5: Draw the belly line downward on a diagonal. The powerful hind leg has a round top that starts almost at the back of the rump line and curves down to make a long, thin, flat foot. The back of the leg starts back up straight but then stops and curves down and then back up toward the rump.

The Kangaroo is a national symbol of Australia. Kangaroos are the only large animals to use hopping as a means of locomotion. The average life expectancy of a kangaroo is about 4–6 years. Different species of Kangaroos have different diets, although all are strict herbivores.

To move at slow speeds, the Kangaroo uses its tail to form a tripod with its two forelimbs. It then raises its hind feet forward, in a form of locomotion called “crawl-walking.”

In this quick tutorial you’ll learn how to draw a Kangaroo in 6 easy steps – great for kids and novice artists.

Step 2: At the tip of the cone draw a small upward curved line to make the nose. Under the top line of the snout draw the tiny eye. At the back of the snout line draw two pointy ears at the top of the head. Draw a line down from the bottom of the ears to make the back of the neck.

Step 6: Between the rump line and the end of the back leg draw two curved lines to make the long, thick tail that reaches the ground. It comes together at a point. Finally add another thin front leg behind the first front leg. Right above the hind foot add the top of another long, thin, flat hind foot.

Kangaroos have a small head, a long, strong tail, large feet and large, powerful hind legs. Often called roos, kangaroos live in troops or mobs consisting 10 or more roos. Female kangaroos are called flyers, does or jills, while male kangaroos are called jacks, bucks, old men, or boomers.

Kangaroos move by hopping and are the only large animal to do so. Kangaroos eat vegetation, and like cows, re-chew their food as cud. When kangaroos fight, they will often balance themselves on their tail and kick the opponent with both feet.

The kangaroo is Australia’s national emblem and has been a vital animal to the Aborigine tribe, providing food, clothing, tools and other items.

Step 1: First draw the snout. It looks like a sideways cone with the pointy end facing to the right.

Kangaroos belong to the Macropodidae family of marsupials, in which females carry their babies in a pouch on the front of their body, along with possums, wombats, koalas, opossums and the Tasmanian devil.

Step 4: Finish the tail and add the center section of the body.

The kangaroo has been depicted in architectural decoration, logos, art and as sports team mascots. During WWI, toy kangaroos and kangaroo pets were popular mascots for Australian servicemen.

Fossil records indicate the first marsupials existed in China about 125 million years ago. Today, kangaroos are found in Australia.
