Canadian Battle: Moose Vs. Kangaroo
In our first competition between the animals of the ruggedly beautiful Canadian wilderness and the barren wastelands of Australia, Canadian Fermentation has determined the outcome of a Moose vs Kangaroo battle. Let’s take a look at our contestants:
This battle – as I’m sure most battles between Australian and Canadian animals will turn out – was not much of a contest.
Size: Weighing in at over 200 lbs, and standing over 6 1/2 ft, the kangaroo may seem like an intimidating opponent; that is until one stands beside a moose which can grow to 7 ft at the shoulder, and weigh almost 1, 400 lbs. If that is not intimidating enough for you consider that the span across a moose antler is 6 ft.
Size advantage favours the moose.
Reach: Kangaroos are known for their boxing prowess which, you might think, gives them an advantage against a non-boxing prowessed type animal. Unfortunately their boxing ability is vastly exaggerated. Seriously, look at those tiny little Australian hands that the kangaroo has. Do you really think that they could hurt the mighty hide of the Canadian moose? Ha. Drink another Fosters, my Australian friends.
Consider the size of the moose’s antlers and the limited reach of the kangaroo, the advantage has to go to the moose.
Speed: The kangaroos top speed is about 70 km/h – quite impressive for an Australian! With all its bulk the moose is not the most maneuverable of animals, but can reach speeds of over 56 km/h.
We have no choice to admit that the kangaroo takes this category, which is a good think, I suppose. With all that speed the kangaroo can easily run away after the moose kicks his ass.
Overall winner: The moose, of course. Seriously, who would you rather fight? A kangaroo or a moose?
Next battle: The next battle will be equally as interesting, and fair, as this one, I’m sure. Keep an eye out for the awsomeness that is Koala bear vs Grizzly bear.
