Ok Boomer
πŸ“½ by @bbcearth

Male kangaroos fight for the same reason most other animals do – mating rights.

In some cases this is a fight to the death. With their incredibly strong hind legs they are capable of crushing the bones and/or rupturing the internal organs of their opponent.

Side note: Male kangaroos are the largest marsupials. They are heavy, and the thumping of a kangaroo in full flight makes a distinctive “booming” sound.

Its strong, heavy hind legs make a distinct “thud” as it moves through bushland, and other kangaroos will recognise the sound of their own kind in flight, and heed it as a warning.

That’s why they call them boomers.
