People in Western Australia have had to re-evaluate their gym routines after a number of super-fit kangaroos were spotted in the area. 

Jackson Vincent told about one such unusual sighting: "He had a really big body and was taller than me. There are a lot of roos at my grandma’s place but I have never seen one that muscular before – he was a big macho male".

Jackson only wanted to have a peaceful walk with his dog, but instead he met a beast that was almost two metres tall and probably weighed around 100kg. 

People responded to the report on an Australian news site's Facebook page with comments about summer bodies and about how far kangaroos have come since the days of everyone's favourite peanut butter ambassador, Skippy:

The Daily Telegraph reports that these kangaroos have been spotted frequently in the area over the past 12 months, but there are no details about where they come from or why they look that way. Jackson told that he would definitely not take the kangaroo on in a boxing match.
