Classic kangaroo interaction, Sandy! Its those hind feet and claws you have to watch, they can rip open the belly and disembowel their oponent. A good illustration of how their tail can be useful when sparring, and you also show the strong muscle structure in their hindquarters. Nicely done!

Amazing to see this- as Carol describes- I would never guess they could use their tails like that. Well done!

I don't think I have seen that tail behavior before, so thanks for sharing this. There is great humor in this image. :)  Very nice.

This is pretty darn amazing... I see this as the quintessential kangaroo shot with pretty much everything. I simply love the action and the way the tail on the "kicker" appears to supporting its effort.
