Kangaroo rat is a tiny desert rodent that jumps around.
Kangaroo rats grow only about 38 centimetres long,
including a tail of more than 20 centimetres. They have
short front legs and large heads. At night, kangaroo rats
come out from their burrows and search for food. They
have large eyes and can see well in the dark. Their silky
fur is yellow or brown on the upper parts and white on
the underparts. Kangaroo rats use their small front feet
to stuff food into fur-lined pouches on the outside of their
cheeks. They carry the food back to their nests. Kangaroo

water that is produced when food inside them combines with the oxygen that they breathe
