Kangaroo rats are rodents. They are rat-like mammals with long tails and large feet like a miniature kangaroo. However, they are very much smaller than kangaroos, with Giant kangaroo rats having a body length of only 15cm (6 inches). Kangaroo rats are not even remotely related to kangaroos, or rat-kangaroos of Australia. Kangaroo rats are placental mammals so they do not have abdominal pouches, but they do have fur lined cheek pouches which are used for storing food. Depending on the species of kangaroo rat, they may vary in shades of brown and grey from a light creamy tan to cinnamon coloured.
