I'm working on an idea about a boxer and I wanted to open my book-to-be with kangaroos boxing men. This was done in the 1800 and 1900s. And, of course, the wonderful youtube has some clips!

While this looks like serious business. Not play acting at all:

Kangaroos have very strong legs and could knock out the strongest of men. Interesting stuff. This practice of men fighting kangaroos was done away with in the mid 1900s.

I love writing nonfiction for this reason. You never know what you might learn!
