''That's not a Morphus... this is a Morphus!'', Kangaroo Dundee, Nightbane.

The Nightbane's Morphus form contains some attributes from any one of the many species of Kangaroos. Kangaroos are jumping marsupials of the family Macropodid. They inhabit Australia, New Guinea, and adjacent islands, They have long and strong hind legs and a large tail, while the fore legs are comparatively short and feeble. The giant kangaroo is the largest species, sometimes becoming twelve or fourteen feet in total length. There are also tree kangaroos, rock kangaroos, and the brush kangaroos who inhabit wooded districts.
