Forget Dave, meet Roger: After giant grey kangaroo is pictured stalking suburbia, a SIX FOOT red rival weighing 14 stone emerges - who crushes buckets for fun
It's the battle of the giant kangaroos. Just a week after pictures of a 2m eastern grey stalking suburban streets emerged, a challenger has stepped forward - and he's not shy to flex his muscles.
Roger the red kangaroo weighs a whopping 89kg and stands 2.007m tall from top to tail - almost exactly the same height as Dave, the east coast's behemoth who wanders the streets, startling dog walkers and golfers alike. But Roger is only nine years old.
To show off his prowess, Roger, who lives at The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, likes to crush metal buckets with his bare paws to workout - while staring menacingly at the camera.
And Dave better be careful because Roger is trained in hand-to-hand combat and can disembowel his opponent with a well-placed kick, according to sanctuary manager Chris 'Brolga' Barnes.
'His daily exercise regime is sparring [kickboxing] his rivals and chasing his human 'Mum', me,'
But Roger might be no match for his eastern grey opponent who tips the scales, weighing in at a massive 95 kilograms.
Though soon Roger will be undefeated as Brolga expects the nine-year-old alpha male to grow bigger as he gets older.
It is a far cry from the baby joey Brolga rescued in 2006 after finding his mother dead on a highway.
A recent photograph also posted on social media shows a young Roger cradled in a carer's hands.
The now more mature kangaroo showed off his softer side earlier this year when he was pictured hugging a stuffed toy bunny he had received from a fan just before Easter.
'When I gave it to him he snatched it off me really quickly and proceeded to attack it, giving it a "bear hug" and wrestling it, even hugging it and kicking out as he would do in kick boxing match, he's an expert kick boxer,' Brolga said back in April.
Usually Roger is very protective
