Kangaroos are one of the few animals that can be brought at the Diamond Shop. They used to be purchased only by gift cards in New Zealend and Australia, however they can now be purchased with 10 diamonds.
There's also an app called "AJ Jump" featuring the kangaroos of Animal Jam.
Their default color is a lilac-greyish-blue pelt, a cream underside and rose-pink inner ears.
They also have a short video about them, called Kickin' it. Other animals that also have short videos featuring them are Deer, Cheetahs and Eagles.
Here's the video:
Like other Diamond Shop animals, Kangaroos do not have a Shaman. However, few people think that perhaps Cosmo might be leading the Kangaroos, since he was the founder of them and they both live in Australia.
