Kangaroo Boxing Video Fighting Kangaroos


 

Kangaroos fight less than most other types of herbivores.

A male kangaroo fights by kicking its opponent with its powerful hind legs and hitting with its front paws (which have sharp claws). These fights usually occur over mating rights and are more ritualistic than aggressive. Very rarely do kangaroos hurt each other during fights.

Contrary to popular folklore a Kangaroo doesn't box like humans do.
