Red Kangaroo - Macropus rufus
The red kangaroo (Macropus rufus) is the largest of all kangaroos, the largest mammal native to Australia, and the largest surviving marsupial. It is found across mainland Australia, avoiding only the more fertile areas in the south, the east coast, and the northern rainforests. Red Kangaroos have a white facial stripe from the corner of the mouth towards the ear. The amount of hairless rhinarium (skin on the tip of the nose) is dusky coloured and intermediate between the narrow band of Grey Kangaroos and the broad one of Euros. Males continue to grow through life and may reach 90 kg in weight. A 92 kg male was caught at Stubberfields Tank in Sturt National Park and this remains the largest individual in the many studies on this species. Males are typically red coloured (lighter in summer and dark rusty red in winter). Females may grow to 40 kg but usually range around 25-30 kg. They are typically blue-grey. However, the colouration of the two sexes grades into each other with small percentage of grey males and red females and some intermediate shades. To confirm the sex of an individual you need to view the abdomen where the pouch opening of females or the scrotum of males is usually obvious.

Common Chimpanzee - Pan troglodytes
The common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), also known as the robust chimpanzee, is a species of great ape. Colloquially, the common chimpanzee is often called the chimpanzee (or 'chimp'), though technically this term refers to both species in the genus Pan: the common chimpanzee and the closely related bonobo, formerly called the pygmy chimpanzee. Evidence from fossils and DNA sequencing show that both species of chimpanzees are the sister group to the modern human lineage. The common chimpanzee is covered in coarse black hair but has a bare face, fingers, toes, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. It is considered more robust than the bonobo, weighing between 40 and 70 kg (88 and 150 lb) and measuring approximately 1.6 to 1.3 m (5 ft 3 in to 4 ft 3 in) from head to tail. Its gestation period is eight months. Infants are weaned when they are about three years old, but usually maintain a close relationship with their mother for several more years; it reaches puberty at the age of eight to ten, and its lifespan in captivity is about fifty years. The common chimpanzee lives in groups which range in size from 15 to 150 members, although individuals travel and forage in much smaller groups during the day. The species lives in a male-dominated, strict hierarchy, which means disputes can generally be settled without the need for violence. Nearly all chimpanzee populations have been recorded using tools, modifying sticks, rocks, grass, and leaves and use them for acquiring honey, termites, ants, nuts, and water. The species has also been found creating sharpened sticks to spear Senegal bushbabies out of small holes in trees.

Considering I've heard a Roo's kick and kill a human, chimpy's biting off more then he can chew. That said, this has to be one of the most original fights I've seen on this site

The head and upper body of the kangaroo seem kind of weak, can the chimp maybe grab that area and pin the 'roo down?

I have no clue about this fight...

I'm pretty sure the kangaroo will kick the chimp to death. This is a really odd fight, to say the least.

The Chimp would easily win. It would rip the Kangaroo's limbs right clean off.

Dude Kangaroo's and their kicks are extremely overrated. They're not as deadly as many people think they are. rolleyes

The Chimp would easily tear the Kangaroo apart before the Marsupial could even attack.

Are you trolling or something??? :huh: rolleyes
No what I'm saying is true. Kangaroo's and their kicks are overrated. Many people thinks their kicks can disembowel, when they actually can't.

They're stronger than the Kangaroo though. Kangaroo's only have strength in their legs and their kicks aren't even deadly since they can't disembowel anything, while their upper body is really weak.

The kangaroo would kick the crap out of the chimp
Which can't disembowel at all. Oh yeah, like kicking is going to kill the Chimp. Once the Chimp gets ahold of the Kangaroo. There's nothing the Kangaroo could do.

As I said. Their kicks aren't as deadly as people think they are. The Chimp could just grab one of it's legs and then snap it or tear it off. The Kangaroo also has arms that couldn't do anything to help it since their arms are weak.

Kangaroo kicks aren't horse/zebra kicks, plus If I'm not mistaken don't DINGO'S kill Red Kangaroo's? That being said the Chimp takes it.

dino mike, Chimps are not king kong!

Firstly have a look at the profile picture. The kangaroos arms seem pretty well muscled actually, and they are known to use them in fights.

Secondly, does "not being able to disembowel" mean being useless? Can the chimp disembowel the roo?

Thirdly, have you ever seen a human snapping in half another humans legs or tearing them off? Hardly, so a chimp couldn´t do that to a kangoroo larger than itself


Being overrated doesn´t make an animal weak. The kangoroo can still punch and kick with a lot of power, and it has rather huge claws on its legs. additionally it has a huge mobility advantage, it could virtually hit and run. Finally, it has a size and reach advantage, and better weaponery. all the chimp has is...it seems more robust and maybe it is a better wrestler!
