    As has been previously pointed out, this isn't nearly as funny as it looks. The kangaroo is in an attack posture, and is getting ready to rest its weight on its tail (yes it can do this), and pummel the abdomen of the person so grappled. Kangaroos have wickedly sharp, long claws on their hind feet, which they can use to disembowel an opponent. If the worst that happened here is that their camera got smashed, the person in the photo should consider him/herself lucky.

    Especially adult males, which get territorial, especially during mating season.

    I dunno, there seems to be a pixelly halo around the camera and strap and the head of the 'roo. Not sure this is authentic.
    Maybe it's a digiroo (not to be confused with a didgeridoo)

    Think you might have something there Tony.
    The arm position in relationship to the camera looks odd.If the 'roo went for the girls head the arms should be more upright.Raised arms would also account for the Hassy's flight.
