The eastern grey kangaroo is a marsupial found in southern and eastern Australia, with a population of several million. It is also known as the great grey kangaroo and the Forester kangaroo. Although a big eastern grey male typically masses around 66 kg and stands almost 2 m tall, the scientific name, ''Macropus giganteus'' , is misleading, as the red kangaroo of the semi-arid inland is, at 85 kg, larger.
