A feisty kangaroo has been filmed trying to fight a hammock – punching and kicking out at the hanging fabric.
The amusing footage from South Australia was shared on Facebook on Monday, and shows marsupial sizing up the hammock, which is hanging from a garden swing.
The boxing kangaroo bobs and weaves while jumping out of the way of the swinging seat, before throwing jabs and kicks.

The young roo then tries another tactic, wrapping the top of the hammock up and pulling it back and forth.
When the hammock again swings back to its position, the marsupials kicks out viciously, getting its leg caught and stumbling backwards in comical scenes.
The small marsupial continues to grab the hammock and bounce around, before he kicks out again angrily.
The roo’s foot again becomes entangled, and narrowly dodges the hammock’s post, ducking underneath the timber frame while falling backwards.
Viewers had their say about the kangaroo’s antics, with one suggesting the animal was sparring to get ready for challenges from rival roos.
Another added: ‘These animals freak me out. They look like very large gerbils on steroids’.
One user also said that the kangaroo ‘looks like me every time I get into a hammock’.
