Oz Kangaroo (born 28 August 1984) is an artist and fursuiter who lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. His main fursona is a rotund kangaroo, wearing a red cap and a green shirt. The character is usually depicted inflating like a balloon. Oz's other character is Duke, a German shepherd dog who loves to dance. Duke has very distinctive "angry" eyebrows and wears a red, leather collar with his name on it.

[edit] Artwork

Oz maintains two online galleries of his furry artwork; some of his art depicts furs in a comical state of inflation. There are several other galleries of his art online, though he has abandoned them to focus solely on his deviantART and Fur Affinity accounts. Oz discovered the fandom in 1999 and became active a year later.

[edit] Costuming

Oz Kangaroo runs Critter Country, a mascot costuming business, and builds fursuits for furry folks as well as mascot characters for corporate clients. Oz's company continued to grow, with ever-larger corporate clients adding Oz-commissioned mascots to their company's image. Within the fandom, Oz has built fursuits for Macroceli, Raccoon Drew, Duncan Roo, Nbowa, Ristin, Brok Badger,Blue_(UK) and Tzup. Plus many many more.

Oz's collection of fursuits have grown and changed over the years with suits coming and going. Though, he is mainly seen wearing his own costume version of Oz as well as Duke. He has also produced an inflating/body expanding version of the Oz suit which has been used in skits at furry conventions with humorous results.

Oz first "fursuited" at Further Confusion 2003 in a borrowed fursuit called Kijibwa an African hunting dog made by Brokken. Though he had been pro mascoting in Australia since 1998
