7. Boxing Kangaroos
These fellas were at least 7 feet tall or over 2 metres in metric. You wouldn't want to cross their paths as they can rip you to pieces with their claws. However from a distance they are wonderful to watch. They gracefully bound away and can jump over a 2 metre fence if needed. I have added a small piece of video so you can see some action.
Kangaroos are marsupials which are mammals with a pouch. Baby kangaroos are called joeys and a group of kangaroos is called a mob.
