Surely each of you has ever seen a kangaroo in various books, films, cartoons, or in real life. Kangaroos live mainly in Australia. They are very interesting animals that feed on grass, fruits, and roots and plants. The hind limbs of a kangaroo are several times longer than the front ones, so kangaroos do not walk, do not run, but only jump. At the same time, they have a long and strong tail, which helps them to jump. A feature of these animals is the presence of a special bear on the stomach of female kangaroos, where small cubs hide until they reach large sizes.

Now you need to connect the three previously drawn shapes using curved lines of different lengths, as shown in the figure.
- Start drawing the paws and tail of the kangaroo.
Now you again need to draw a few auxiliary lines to indicate the location of the tail, as well as the limbs of the kangaroo.
- Depict the outlines of the kangaroo’s face.
Near the previously drawn auxiliary lines indicating the location of the head, draw curved lines, as shown in the figure.
- Add the facial features of the kangaroo.
Inside the outline of the kangaroo’s head, draw the eye, nose, and mouth using curved lines of different lengths as shown.
- Sketch out the ears of the animal.
At the top of the kangaroo’s head, draw two ears pointing in different directions. Use curved lines of varying lengths.
- Add the outlines of the upper limbs.
Near the previously drawn auxiliary lines, with which you marked the location of the limbs, add a few curved lines.
- Sketch out the paw brushes.
Continue drawing the previously drawn lines using short, curved lines of varying lengths to draw the paws and toes.
- Draw the outlines of the lower limbs of the kangaroo.
Now you should draw a few curved lines near the auxiliary lines with which you marked the location of the lower legs.
- Add the feet of the animal.
Continue drawing the lower limbs by drawing long feet with toes. Use curved and rounded lines for this.
- Finish drawing the kangaroo tail.
Beside the previously drawn curved line denoting the outline of the kangaroo tail, draw another curved line to complete its drawing.
