Oh hi, Roger.

They don’t often get as muscly or as famous as Roger, the behemoth ‘roo who resides at the Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia.

The prominent marsupial is known for crushing metal buckets, and well, being really buff.

Now town shopping centre, Todd Mall has proposed erecting a life-size statue of Roger, in a bid to “rejuvenate” the complex, according to the NT News.

“Roger has recently been recognised as one of the 10 most famous animals in the world,” Chris “Brolga” Barns, who runs Kangaroo Sanctuary, told the newspaper.

“Photos and videos of Roger go viral all the time because hes world-renowned as being really muscular, with a great physique.” Oh, don’t we know it.

Roger stands more than two metres (6.5 feet) tall, and weighs 89 kilograms (196 pounds.)

We’ll have to wait and see if the mall creates a statue that accurately reflects his might. In the meantime, Instagram posts featuring the beefy kangaroo are still getting plenty of likes. Or frights.

Easy there, Roger.
