Man In Australia Takes Photos Of Kangaroo Who Might Bench Press More Than You (Photos)


These kangaroos must be shooting up steroids or just moving up weights. An Australian man took these photos of this brolic kangaroo and we’re wondering if Mother Nature is evolving in front of our eyes.

You’re trying to enjoy some much deserved R&R time but then you suddenly come face to face with something other than a raccoon. You see this muscular kangaroo. One thing’s for sure-you have got to take a picture because no one will believe you. Secondly, walk away super slowly.

27-year old Jackson Vincent came in contact with this muscular creature that probably has Steelers James Harrison somewhere wondering about his shredding program.

Jackson, from Freemantle, Perth, had been visiting his grandmother in Margaret River and saw the gargantuan animal on her property at about 11.30am.

He said: “I have been going to that creek since I was a little boy and there have always been kangaroos on the property.

“I was walking my dog and we saw this huge roo standing in the water. I have never seen a kangaroo standing in the water like that, we could just see his head at first, and he was one of the biggest I have ever seen.

“As I ran around him to take a picture he came closer and that was when I realised he was coming right at me and he was really big.

“I am pretty confident around animals but the moment when he started to come out of the water my heart definitely jumped and I decided to take a few steps back.

“He looked to be at least two metres (6ft 5in) tall, or taller, and must have weighed at least 100 kg (16st).

Jackson added: “His claws were really big – they were as long as my hand. That for me was even scarier than his muscles, they looked nasty.

“I have never seen a kangaroo be so defensive – it definitely looked like he was puffing his chest muscles up.

“I definitely wouldn’t like to take him on in a boxing match.”

These photos are spectacular. The minute he posted them to his Facebook page, they went viral.
