An Australian man walking his dog along a creek was astounded and then alarmed when he stumbled upon a monstrous-looking kangaroo bathing in the water.
Jackson Vincent managed to snap some truly breathtaking pictures of the muscle-bound marsupial which appeared to be keeping a close eye on the interloper who had interrupted its swim.
Based on his proximity to the creature, the young man estimated that the animal stood nearly six-and-a-half feet tall and weighed around two hundred pounds.
Although initially quite excited about the encounter, Vincent’s perspective quickly changed when the kangaroo began heading towards him in what seemed like an aggressive stance.
Fearing for his dog’s safety, the young man decided that discretion was the better part of valor and quickly fled the scene before it took an ugly turn.
Although many observers online have marveled at the creature’s bulging biceps, Vincent says that it was the kangaroo’s claws which were far more disconcerting as they looked be as long as the young man’s hand.
