Eastern Grey Kangaroo
Eastern Grey Kangaroos are marsupial mammals that belongs to a small group called macropods. They are one of the largest kangaroo species & have soft, thick, grey-brown fur, paler on the underparts, with a finely haired muzzle, and dark tips to the paws, feet & tail. They have a small head with big ears. The male is much larger than the female. They are able to travel at great speed (over 50 kph) using the powerful, enlarged hindquarters for leaping, aided by the long tail (over 1m in length) which acts as a balance & rudder. They are also good swimmers.
