A night time showdown between two kangaroos caught on camera has gone viral, attracting more than 1.3 million views on Facebook.

Trading blows like professional boxers, the giant marsupials can be seen grappling, shoving, kicking and even scratching at each others throats.

As the punch-up escalates the par crashes onto the bonnet of a parked car but does little to faze either animal.

The footage was taken by Quintin Turner (18) as he retuned home from a pub with his father in Queensland, Australia.

“I had never seen it before and my father had never seen them fight for so long," he told the Gladstone Observer.

“The film goes for more than six minutes but the two were watching the fight for well over 15 minutes, we just got tired of it and drove home.”
