Exotic Animals of the 2016 Campaign

Last year, when I was doing "Exotic Animals of the 2016 Campaign", this species had not even been discovered.

The Kasicharoo /ˌkæ-sichəˈruː/ is a marsupial from the family Macropostaldidae (macropost, meaning "large mailbox"). In common use the term is used to describe the largest species from this family, especially those of the genus Macropus: the red Kasicharoo, antilopine Kasicharoo, and eastern grey Kasicharoo. Kasicharoos are endemic to Ohio. The Buckeye government estimates that 34.3 million Kasicharoos lived within the commercial harvest areas of Ohio in 2011, 25.1 million in Cleveland alone.

Kasicharoos have large, powerful hind legs, large imaginations adapted for leaping to conclusions, a long muscular tail for twerking, and a small head, which doubles as a hat rack. Like most marsupials, female Kasicharoos have a pouch called a marsupium in which joeys complete postnatal development. (Don't ask what his father carried in his pouch unless you have an hour or so to kill.)

Europeans have long regarded Kasicharoos as strange animals. Early explorers described them as creatures that had heads like deer (without antlers), stood upright like men, and hopped like frogs. Kasicharoos are shy and retiring by nature, and in normal circumstances present no threat to humans, despite karate chop like movements of their tiny arms.
