A beloved kangaroo, known for his impressive muscles and bucket-crushing skills, has passed away. Roger lived at The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Australia and on Saturday, the refuge announced his death:

Farewell our darling Roger ❤️

Sadly Roger has passed away of old age. He lived a lovely long life and was loved by millions around the world. We will always love you and miss you Roger ❤️

Roger made it to 12 years of age – a few days before his death, a regal photo was taken of him relaxing before a meal.  The sanctuary wrote:

The last photo of Roger we took was just a few days before he passed. He was relaxing before a big feed. 💕 
Thank you everyone for your beautiful messages about Roger. He was so well loved by you all ❤️

Roger garnered a great deal of attention after photos of his beefy muscles were circulated on social media.

Earlier this year, a video of Roger was posted to the Sanctuary’s Facebook page.

“He’s an old guy now, but he’s still looking pretty good in the upper body.”

I love hanging out with Roger ❤️
