This 14 stone kangaroo could probably beat you in a fight

There’s a good reason why this terrifying kangaroo is peering at you with an extremely menacing glare.
 
It’s because he’s 6ft tall, weights 14 stone, and he could probably beat you in a fight.

The muscular marsupial, named Roger, lives in a sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia, and even works out every day by crushing tin buckets for the sheer fun of it.
 
But he’s pretty fond on exerting his authority, and also enjoys chasing his keeper around every time he bravely ‘invades’ Roger’s enclosure.
 
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, trainer Chris Brogla said: ‘His daily exercise regime is sparring [kickboxing] his rivals and chasing his human Mum – me.
 
‘He also loves crushing metal buckets
 
‘Don’t mess with a “Big Red”, they’ll disembowel you… or worse’.
 
But perhaps most terrifying of all is the fact that Roger is just 9 years old, and with kangaroo life expectancy being as high as 22 years, that means that Roger isn’t done with his reign of terror just yet.
