The 'fight' appears to go in slow motion to start with
The family came across the three roos as they drove down a quiet street in Australia at night

A brawl of the marsupial kind has been caught on camera on somebody's front lawn. A family came across the three kangaroos apparently fighting as they drove down a quiet street in Australia at night.Footage shows the group of animals squaring up to each other in the battle, which took place in the front garden.

The family stayed safely inside their car as they spotted the trio of raging roos on the other side of the road.

Two of the animals appear to box in slow motion as the video starts, jumping and slinging their arms. The third then gets involved, and they push one another before one kicks out with its powerful back legs.

The trio seem to get distracted by itchy spots several times though, seemingly stopping to scratch.

Eventually they hop off, but the apparent fight provided much amusement to the two children watching with their parents, who could be heard giggling in the background.

Kangaroos are well-suited to a boxing match because their large tails means they are well-balanced on their hind legs. They can jump 25 ft, so have powerful legs to tackle opponents. They also have sharp claws on their hands and feet which help with self-defense.

Last year, a hapless kangaroo picked a fight with himself after spotting himself in a window. He scratched at his reflection in the window before sizing up his opposition.

Earlier this year, a terrified British family found themselves stuck in a house when an angry kangaroo pounded on the glass.

Its apparent aggression left the mum and her two children afraid to leave the house.

She said: "It's one thing to admire the roos from afar, it's another to be under house arrest thanks to their aggressive actions!"
