It's breeding season and the stallions are battling for dominance across the landscape.

Narrator Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey) notes the boss of the kangaroo mob “flexes his muscles” in a show of strength when a subordinate male attempts to make moves on the females. What’s a man to do?

It would seem their primary means of communication is through punches as the boss and subordinate duke it out in front of the ladies. Using their strong tails as extra support, the marsupials stand tall as they throw hands.
