This is the moment a kangaroo punches a young boy in the face after he got too close to the animal at an Australian zoo.
Dyson was at a wild life park at Glen Waverley in Melbourne with his family when his mother Tiff caught the bizarre moment on camera.
In the footage, which was posted online last week, Dyson can be seen standing less than a metre away from an emu and massive kangaroo.

Hesitant to feed the animals, Dyson takes advice from his older brother who urges him to ‘walk straight at it’.
When he takes a step forward, the roo fires off a stiff left jab and punches the boy in the face.
After the attack, the mother can be heard laughing in shock as she asks her son if he’s OK.
‘Are you alright Dyson, did it get you? Are you ok?,’ she says.
Dyson’s brother, who coaxed him towards the animal, appears just as shocked by the sudden left hook.
‘Did it get you in the face? Oh sh**,’ he says.
Stunned by the hit, the boy can be seen walking away from the animal shielding his face with his hands.
Meanwhile, a little girl who saw the event unfold, can be heard screaming ‘get away from me’ in the background, seemingly terrified by what she had just witnessed.
