Red face 'Kangaroo' battles 'giant' 'T-Rex'

So this is the 'real' reason the T-Rex became extinct !

Hmmm .... that's no good - that was via the Australian ABC TV show Landline.

Thumbs up

Here ya go - video contained within this linked report.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cne...-in-australia/

Looks like a defence mechanism by the mother protecting her Joey from the aerial 'threat' ..... Wedge-tailed Eagles commonly take Kangaroos - the smaller ones are constantly at danger from even solitary Eagles ....

Oh another thing. On the bird topic. Is there a type of bird that you definitely would not want to enter an enclosure of? The only three birds I would think that would be immediately dangerous to a person if you walked in it's enclosure would be the Ostrich, Emu, and Cassowary. But are there any others? They haven't cloned the terror bird yet? Ha. Also I hope this doesn't make me sound callous but I think it is therapeutic every once in a while to see a story of a person attacked or mauled by an animal at a zoo. It gets our mind off of all of the sexual assault crap or flag burning that you constantly hear. And I am glad that zoo keepers and authorities are getting better at not killing the animals because of human negligence. Seriously that whole story reminded me of that M. Night Shymalan movie The Happening. That guy who walked into the lion enclosure and stuck out his arm for the lion to eat him. A zombie.

End this dummy woman with a line from Shakespeare.

Exclamation Meat Eating Kangaroos !!!

It turns out that it's not just the extinct Megafauna that had meat eating Macropods ....

Video evidence of a modern day kangaroo eating meat in the wild has been taken:
https://www.australiangeographic.com...o-eats-a-bird/

In a later interview, one large rogue buck kangaroo was heard to say, "What - you think these bear claws are just for grabbing handfuls of grass?, or the missus ?!"

Be careful out there folks !!

Kangaroos in the snow .......

Check out the size of this big boomer !

I reckon this big fulla is eyeing off that nice warm slow combustion fire heated lounge room and thinking to himself - "you know, one decent kick on that front door and I reckon I could get in there !"

How dangerous are Kangaroos

A short vid by ABC Science programming (kids educational level) includes some good info on Kangaroo psychology
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=bHnm0jsO5DY

She says "I hope there are no Kangaroo mating videos because that's just horrendous" ...... lol

That's all they have on their mind! Either mating or bashing you up so that they are ahead of you in the queue !
