We in America always think of kangaroos as sweet and cuddly, but I've heard they can be VERY aggressive at times. Lucky woman.................

Weird stuff... Never thought I would hear about kangoros doing this. The males can be aggressive and territorial in the wild and the largest ones, esp red kangaroos which are extremely powerful animals, if you get in it's path you are in trouble. They really only fight each other and there have been cases where humans have been attacked but it's really rare . There are a few Eastern Greys in zoos and things over here and they're pretty docile creatures, very friendly really. http://www.articlesbase.com/pets-articles/...oos-199481.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangaroo
