Kangaroos, or water buffalos, are the largest land mammals on the planet.
They are native to South America, where they can grow to about four metres in length and weigh as much as a large house cat.
However, the animals’ traditional diet consists mainly of ground meat, often chicken, beef, pork and lamb.
The animals also eat large quantities of plant material such as bamboo shoots, fruit, leaves and fruit trees, which are considered to be an essential part of their diet.
A recent study by researchers at the University of Queensland, Australia, has shown that kangarians are more sensitive to salt than the other four species of land mammals studied, and have developed a more robust digestive system.
They also have a lower rate of cancer, with a mortality rate of just 1.4 per cent compared to the 5.4% of all other mammals, according to the study.
The researchers studied the digestion of kangaros from five different breeds, including the kangaloo, the black, the white, the silver, the orange and the grey, and compared the diets of the different animals.
They found that the kangs diet was more nutritionally balanced than the animals other diet, with no significant differences in protein content or carbohydrates between the klangars and the other mammals.
“The nutritional profile of the kongaros is a bit different from other mammals as it is a meat-based diet that is very high in protein and low in carbohydrate, so this may be related to their ability to digest that meat more efficiently than other animals,” Dr Michael Wilson, a researcher at the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Studies at the Queensland University of Technology, told The Hindu.
When it comes to digestion, the researchers found that kangs digestive system was similar to that of other large carnivores.
Dr Wilson said the animals may be able to break down the meat in a more efficient way than other large animals, but he noted that their digestion system is also “not as robust as the carnivores”.
“It’s not the best system for digesting plant material, so the digesting of plants is not as efficient, so it’s not a great system for the animals to digest plant material,” he said.
Despite their nutritional differences, kangars are considered a delicacy in many parts of Asia, particularly China.
The country has one of the highest populations of the land mammals, with over 1,000,000 animals on its mainland.
Kangaroose are believed to have been domesticated from the wild by humans in the early 1900s, with their meat prized by the wealthy and rich.
This year, the first kangau festival was held in New Zealand, which was the first to see a wild kangai take part in a national celebration.
Many of the other kangarinas, including those in the northern and southern parts of Australia, have been bred by Chinese companies.
Some are sold in restaurants in Singapore, Hong Kong and China.
