Roo See, Roo Do: Young Kangaroos Spar Alongside Older Roos in Melbourne

Two older kangaroos provided inspiration for two young roos, who were spotted sparring in the Melbourne suburb of South Morang on September 7.

In this video taken by local Cheryl Lawson, the small roos are seen grabbing and kicking each other in their playfight while the two older roos have their own battle in the background.

Lawson said the mob of kangaroos regularly hops through her area to graze the nature strip.

“I just happened to be walking past and these two large male kangaroos were having a morning boxing session. They weren’t at all worried by my presence. Remarkable to witness in a suburban area,” Lawson told Storyful. Credit: Cheryl Lawson via Storyful
