The kangarougar is a terrifyingly efficient hunter, and, unlike the cougar, whose speeds are limited to roughly 55 kph, this keen-eyed predator can reach over 75 kph on open ground. Located primarily in eastern Australia, the kangarougar can leap clear over the 8m-high fences designed to deter them from preying on domestic cattle herds. And, they are as elusive as they are deadly.
This rare photograph was taken recently by Bunguin‘s Australian correspondent, Dr. White, and it presents the first kangarougar in-motion capture known to science. Previously, even the most dedicated (and medicated) scientists were too terrified to approach this closely. Luckily, Dr. White had taken cues from an early pioneer in animal-encounter management.
