BOX­ING ROOS BRIGHTEN THE DAY

Wanneroo Times - - Opinion -

AN early morn­ing ride down Duffy Ter­race in Wood­vale al­ways re­veals many of the es­ti­mated 200 res­i­dent west­ern grey kan­ga­roos. On this morn­ing, I sighted two very tall males box­ing each other. Not only do they box with their forepaws, but they give each other some very sav­age kicks by sup­port­ing their bod­ies on their strong tails. Kan­ga­roos have de­vel­oped ex­tra thick skin around their stom­achs to avoid se­ri­ous in­juries dur­ing these bat­tles over fe­males in the mob. GARY TATE, Green­wood
