Roger, the kangaroo famous for his buff physique, has died

Roger The Extremely Ripped Roo Dies Not Mirin But At Age 12

Roger, the original alpha male and phenomenally yolked roo from Alice Springs Kangaroo Sanctuary, sadly passed away from old age over the weekend.

The roo was rescued as a joey after his mother was killed in a auto accident, and grew up at the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs in Australia.

Roger initially hit the headlines when an image of him crushing a metal bucket using his massive muscles went viral in 2015.

Sanctuary manager Chris "Brolga" Barnes announced Roger's death on Facebook on Saturday.

The physical evidence of Roger's extraordinary physical attributes made him into something of a worldwide sensation in recent years, with people flocking from all over the globe to The Kangaroo Sanctuary, a 90-acre wildlife reserve in Alice Springs, to see him in the flesh. So we will reflect on his life today and for many years to come.

Mr Barns set up the sanctuary as a place to raise him.

He once famously described the disastrous crash of an early Falcon 9 booster as "rapid unscheduled disassembly". It took two tries to get the Dragon close enough to be captured by the space station's robot arm.

In a 2016 clip from Kangaroo Dundee, a National Geographic documentary series about Barns' work at the sanctuary, Barns is shown ambling down a dirt path on crutches after he injured his knee sprinting away from Roger in hopes of avoiding a fight.

In his ~retirement~ Roger mostly just lazed around a bunch, and sanctuary staff regularly found him lying in the dirt on his back, just soaking in his older age.

"He will always be here", Barns said. "We will always love you and miss you Roger".

Arthritis and fading vision plagued Roger in his final years, Barns said, before he died of old age. He had a great life and was much loved by all.
