Kangaroo Celebrities
Contest Directions: Here's some news from China. A kangaroo in a zoo in Shaanxi Province will have a set of dentures made for her, to help chew food. Zoo keepers have realized the need for kangaroo dentures after they noticed that she lost most of her molar teeth and asked Shaanxi dental experts to make false teeth for the animal.
Combine kangaroos with celebrities, politicians, or otherwise famous characters any way you like. Examples may include celebrity looking like kangaroo (with "kangaroo pouch" holding another celebrity, or a baby), or a kangaroo looking like a celebrity (head swap). Show us what anatomy mix you prefer.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Kangaroo is a group of marsupial mammal kangaroo families. Members of this group are found in Australia, New Guinea and nearest islands. Features: Presence of marsupial bones (special pelvis bones are developed both in male and female kangaroos). Body temperature ranges from 34 to 36 Celsius. Kangaroos give birth to Joey and feed them with milk. Kangaroos have a pouch called a marsupial in which joeys complete postnatal development and the pouch has an opening towards head similar to the pocket of an apron. Structure of lower jaw is peculiar with lower ends bent inwards. Tusks are absent or underdeveloped and the root teeth are present with blunted tubercles. As with all marsupials, the young are born at a very early stage of development - after a gestation of 31 - 36 days. At this stage, only the forelimbs are somewhat developed, to allow the newborn to climb to the pouch and attach to a teat. Mother kangaroo sits in a specific position with tail between the legs and the Joey (size less than a minimus) crawls into the pouch and finds a teat in pouch for milk feeding. Immune system of the new born Joey is not fully developed and hence milk of mother kangaroo has strong antibacterial action. Pouch, contrary to the widespread fallacy, is absent in male kangaroos and is present only in female kangaroos. Description: Kangaroos have powerful hind legs, huge tail, slender brachium, tiny arms, identical to human hands, forepaws, with which the kangaroo digs strawberries and roots. Kangaroo transfers entire weight of the body onto tail and then both the hind legs, by liberating with a single motion up and down, the kangaroos cause severe injuries to the opponent. Pushing away with powerful hind legs, the kangaroos can hop up to 12 meters long and 3 meters high.
