People are freaked out by how massive kangaroos are


Unless you live in Australia, you probably don’t think much about kangaroos on a daily basis.

So when TikToker Jay Brewer released footage of the jacked animal nearly knocking him out with his gigantic arms, it soon went viral, with viewers stunned by the ‘roo’s size.

In the clip, the marsupial – who has clearly been eating his protein – can be seen clinging onto Jay’s arms.

Although things start to get a little tricky as the kangaroo tightens his grip, there’s a fence between them.

But that didn’t stop Jay from expressing his shock, saying: “Man, you are a big kangaroo, those are strong arms.”

He uploaded the footage alongside the caption: “The kangaroos in Texas seem to be even bigger than the ones in Australia.”

Many individuals agreed, with the prevailing feeling among users being one of awe and disbelief at his body.

As said by one commenter, “Bros gonna take ur lunch money,” while another joked: “He eat a lot of protein.”

A third quipped: “Bros has two guns just give him ur money so nobody gets hurt.”

Others shared their concerns about Jay’s proximity to the ripped creature, including this person who said: “Roos will literally rip you apart. Why do people not realise how dangerous they actually are. Sincerely, an aussie.”

In response, the TikToker pointed out: “Why do you think I stayed behind the fence.”

And if you’ve ever wondered why certain kangaroos seem like they’ve been lifting weights every day of their lives, one Redditor was there to explain.

“It’s older male kangaroos that get jacked arms,” they wrote. “As they get older it becomes more difficult for them to hop, thus they support their body weight with their arms while trotting and their motion are kinda like push-ups, which results in massive arm muscles.”

Kangaroos fight using their razor-sharp claws as well as their huge weapons, but only when they feel threatened or believe you’re withholding food from them.

Hence why experts suggest to keep your distance if you do ever come across one in the wild (especially if they’ve got arms like this).

Of course, not everyone has followed these rules over the years – remember the man who punched a joey when it grabbed his dog in a headlock?

Speaking about the viral moment, which rose to internet fame back in 2016, Dr Mark Eldrige, a kangaroo expert from the Australian Museum, said: “Male kangaroos have very big forearms and are very strong.

“The man was very lucky he didn’t get kicked. Before kangaroos fight, they usually size each other up. If one doesn’t back down, they will get into an aggressive encounter.

“I think the kangaroo was still in the sizing up stage when he was hit with the punch, and so the man was lucky the roo decided to call it quits instead of using his leg which cause a lot of damage.”
