True, but I think the barrier to kangaroo is that some people find the idea
"gross," (I'm not one of them) because the animal is unfamiliar, and
unfamiliar animals are associated with roadkill.

But Buffalo actually looks like a cow.  When I see one, I think, "cow."  Big
and furry, but so are some Scottish breeds.
