The Eastern Grey Kangaroo is the most common Kangaroo species in Australia.

The eastern grey kangaroo is one of two largest macropods, or big footed marsupials, the other being the red kangaroo. This particular species of 'roo can grow to 1.8 meters tall (5'11').

This kangaroo's fur is greyish-brown in most areas of its body, with the colouring being darker on the back and lighter underneath. The animal's face typically has a white mark on each side; those markings may differ between males and females.

Ears are black, as is a large stripe that starts at each eye and runs down the neck all the way to the shoulders. A row of smaller stripes lie just below that first line; those usually run along both sides of the torso.

Kangaroos move by hopping, using their powerful hind legs and tail for momentum; they can reach speeds of 48 kilometres per hour (30 miles per hour).

Eastern greys live in mobs, or groups, and are considered 'herbivorous browsers'. These animals feed on grasses, herbs and other low-lying plants. They also eat the leaves of shrubs such as eucalyptus when they're available; sometimes kangaroos get water from tree roots.
