Ninja Kangaroos

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Raoul Slater

Young male kangaroos test their strength with "boxing" matches that mostlu occur at dawn. One buck "gets in the other's face" with its forepaws until the second one concedes and hops away, or stands up tall and faces its tormentor. Then the two grapple until an advantage is gained and one rears back onto its tail and kicks out with both its feet. Here the roo on the left clearly has its opponent on the retreat.

Location: Lake Cootharaba, Sunshine Coast, Qld, Australia
