Kangaroo leather is one of the finest and strongest light weight leathers known. Its tensile strength far exceeds that of any of the domestic animal leathers and it is much lighter. For this reason it is widely used to produce the highest quality sporting shoes. For example, virtually all of the soccer boots worn by international players are made from kangaroo leather.
The light weight and fine texture of kangaroo leather also makes it highly prized in the fashion, and other industries. The following pages show some examples of leatherware and an article on the nature of kangaroo skin's tensile strength.

Kangaroo Meat for Pet Food:
Just as its important for humans to be careful of dietary fat intake, so too should be our pets. Too much fat can be just as great a problem for pets as it is for humans. Many people also forget that dogs and cats are carnivores with a digestive system designed to process raw meat. For this reason it is important that their diet give them at least some opportunity to do so, kangaroo is the healthiest alternative.
