DailyMail A very muscular kangaroo spotted taking a dip in a river may have been trying to escape the photographer’s dog. The giant boomer was pictured having a splash in the Boodjidup Creek, in Margaret River, about four hours south of Perth. The majestic marsupial offered a defiant expression as it stood in waist-deep water and looked straight down the lens of the camera, its arm and chest muscles bulging. But the animal may not have just been cooling off, as kangaroos are known to jump into water to escape predators. ‘If they see a dog, and they think that’s a potential predator, they’ll get into the water in the hope that the dog won’t pursue them,’ wildlife biologist Bill Bateman told the ABC. The Curtin University academic said kangaroos were good swimmers and had even been seen running into the ocean. Jackson Kingsley Vincent said he ran into the kangaroo while walking with his dog Dharma and waiting about 20 minutes to see it it would leave the water. ‘[Dharma has] never really seen a kangaroo before. She was pretty energetic at the time – she just wanted to play with this kangaroo, but the kangaroo obviously didn’t want to play back,’ he said. Mr Vincent said the muscular marsupial puffed himself up and stared down him and his dog from the water. The kangaroo appeared a bit off-put in photos Mr Vincent took, sporting a rather displeased look as it glared at the human intruders.
An Australian man was walking his dog near Perth, when he started a large kangaroo, who was jacked out of his mind. The kangaroo, which was likely started by the man’s dog, jumped into a river and seemed to flex a it looked back at the intruders as if to say “Come at me, bro. I dare you.” The buff marsupial seemed to pose for the camera, showing off his guns, proving that he is not one of those kangaroos that a human stands a chance against in a boxing match. This is not the first time we have blogged about a yoked kangaroo, in 2015 Dave the muscular kangaroo went viral, he tipped the scales at a powerful 206-pounds all of which was muscle. Is there some sort of animal kingdom version of The Arnold Classic going on that we humans are unaware of?
