Momma watches out as the kits play! The kit is a cross-fox, which is a color morph resulting from one parent being a red fox and the other a silver fox (see previous shots of dad in the photostream. Seen in Mt Rainier NP.
Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Macropus giganteus

This is the real deal. These guys are not playing. The big bloke in the background is either the next contender or the coach. Every time a blow was landed, he’d rise up on his tail and call out, like he’d just taken the hit.
That forward thrust from the tail can be felt here.
They infict severe injuiries and occasionally enough to cause death.
