Kangaskhan is a rather large, brown-and-cream-coloured, Kangaroo-like pokemon. Its tough hide has epaulette-shaped growths on the shoulders, as well as square-shaped patches on the knees, while a series of ridges and growths run down its back to its tail, where two spiked protrusions grow.
Kangaskhan are commonly seen with babies inside their pouches.
tactician named the Ace Of Scarabs
has proposed that some of these babies are not in fact children
of the Kangaskhan, but rather their underdeveloped twin sisters
. This would explain much about why Kangaskhan often hatch with a baby already in their pouch
Kangaskhan are found on the wild, untamed plains, far from humans.
Most Kangaskhan are in fact partial omnivores, favouring leaves, fruit, and beans, although they are known to ocassionally resort to freshwater fish for the protein.
Kangaskhan can be rather wary of humans, especially if they have young in their pouches. This wariness will turn into protective hostility
if the young in their pouch is threatened.
They are also known to chase travelers and campers off their territory during birthing season, or merely because they want to steal the food supplies.
Male Kangaskhan have yet to be witnessed in the wild.
Much speculation has been made about how breeding takes place, although the current leading theory made by a Breeder is that they in fact merely mate with any Male from a compatible Egg Group
Mostly solitary, during times when food is plentiful, Kangaskhan may congregate to take care of their young in bands sometimes referred to as sisterhoods
. The most experienced and skillful Kangaskhan takes on the mantle of Matriach in such groupings. These sisterhoods dissolve when food becomes scarce during the dry season.
