As with most male animals (and sometimes humans), fighting is usually meant to defend territory, access females for mating, and show dominance. For kangaroos, this usually ends up in very intense battles that look like a heavyweight boxing match.
Because of their long and sturdy tails, kangaroos can use their legs to give them some extra kicking power. They can then simultaneously use their fists to do some amazing Mike Tyson impressions.
For this lucky videographer, one such fight was caught in the Australian brush. These two kangaroos have just become engaged in a epic battle for one reason or another, but when they realize they have been captured on film they have the most fascinating and hilarious reaction.
It’s not often that you get to see two animals who are dueling one another, and then become seemingly embarrassed by their actions. It is almost as if they thought their fight would end with nothing resolved so they just hopped away in shame.
Check out the hilarious video below!
