Shocking footage has emerged of a dad getting absolutely floored by a huge kangaroo while trying to defend his children on Christmas day.
You won't believe your eyes when you see this one...
Now, Australia is a truly beautiful place...

Australia's wildlife is truly one of a kind...But alongside the adorable koala bears and beautiful birds, there are so many dangerous Aussie animals that should certainly be avoided.
Such as the numerous species of deadly venomous snakes...And of course, the gigantic spiders!
There are also huge saltwater crocodiles...And the deadly sharks in the oceans.
But one of the most deadly animals in Australia is perhaps the most unlikely.

These strong animals are a lot more dangerous than one would think...Because they are extremely territorial and protective of their young, meaning that any human who gets in their way will be in serious trouble.
And one unfortunate dad recently proved this.

But the kangaroo had other ideas...
