“A western gray kangaroo male was doing his own thing when approached by another male who wanted to provoke him,” explains Lea Scaddan. “It quickly turned into a full-blown confrontation with both males as they fought for dominance of the females. The male kangaroo uses its strong tail as support so he can kick his opponent with his hind legs. Fortunately for the other male, the kangaroo on the right misjudged the kick and missed him altogether.”
