Roger is one heck of a fighter and a strongman. Errr, make that strongkangaroo.
Roger’s trainer, Chris Barnes, the sanctuary manager where Roger lives in Australia, says Roger is a great kick-boxer.
… sanctuary manager Chris ‘Brolga’ Barnes has relished in the marsupial’s newfound fame, uploading photos to show the sanctuary’s near-300,000 followers more of Roger’s personality.
In one shot Roger has his body propped upright as he rests his front legs on a boxing bag.
Another image reveals Roger propping his chest forward as he reaches upwards to nibble on the leaves of an overhead tree.
While Roger puts on a tough front, he’s really a bit of a softy.
He’s often pictured hugging tightly on his two favorite play-toys, a soft Easter bunny and Santa.
In June of last year, Brolga told Daily Mail Australia that Roger was trained in hand-to-hand combat and could disembowel his opponent with a well-placed kick.
‘His daily exercise regime is sparring [kickboxing]his rivals and chasing his human ‘Mum’, me,’ Brolga told Daily Mail Australia.
‘He also loves crushing metal buckets.
As we said, don’t’ mess with Roger. Here he is in action.
Personally, I think he let Barnes off the hook. I also think Roger would look great in that hat.
