Roger the muscle-bound kangaroo, who crushed a metal bin like it was a paper cup, has died at the age of 12.

Roger had 1.3 million Facebook and Instagram followers, and was housed in an Australian kangaroo sanctuary after his mother was killed by a passing vehicle.

In 2015, the muscular marsupial impressed many people online after a video clip of him crushing a metal bucket with his bare paws went viral. The caretaker announced the animal's death in a video posted to Facebook on Saturday.

"Roger was our alpha male for many years and he grew up to be a kangaroo that people from all over the world have grown to love as much as we love him too", owner Chris Barns said.

The massive red kangaroo weighed almost 200 pounds and stood about six feet seven inches, according to the sanctuary.

The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia, where Roger was cared for, said it was a "very sad day".
