Eastern Grey Kangaroo
One of the commonest marsupials in Australia, the Eastern Grey Kangaroo can be found over much of the eastern half of the country on both sides of the Great Divide. They are the second-largest marsupial behind the Red Kangaroo, although the size of the two species can overlap. They are also related to the similar Western Grey Kangaroo and can be told apart by the different facial features of the two species - the Eastern has longer ears and a larger muzzle. As with other kangaroos and macropods, their main diet is grass and they have apparently benefitted from the clearing of bush and forest for crops and grazing, leading to an estimated poplation of more than ten million.
