    1. Thanks Ruth.
      Mum was very obliging and let me approach her to about 3 m. The reserve borders onto a build up area so the kangaroos are obviously used to people which made it easy.

The western grey kangaroo is a large and very common kangaroo or macropod, found across almost the entire southern part of Australia, from just south of Shark Bay to coastal South Australia, western Victoria, and the entire Murray–Darling Basin in New South Wales and Queensland. The subspecies on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, is known as the Kangaroo Island kangaroo.
