The possibility of hadronic Dark Matter particles is analised in the framework of the simplest extensions of the Standard Model. Hadronic particles possess strong interaction and consist of new heavy quark and light standard one. It is shown that the existence of heavy quarks does not contradict to the precision electro-weak restrictions on new physics. The neutral and charged pseudoscalar low-lying heavy states are considered as the Dark Matter particle and its mass-degenerated partner. We evaluated the values of their masses and lifetime of the charged component. The potential of low-energy interactions of these particles with nucleons is described in the framework of the exchangemeson model. Some peculiarities of the hadronic Dark Matter scenario are also discussed.
