As cities along the east coast expand into forests and
woodlands, Eastern Grey Kangaroos are coming into increasing
contact with people.
They are found across a broad range of climates from Cape York
to Tasmania. The further south you travel, the larger they are and
the smaller the extremeties (ears and tail).
They spend most of the day under cover of woodlands and forest
but come out to graze a few hours before sunset and feed throughout
the night, they then return to cover a few hours after sunrise.
If alarmed, they strike the ground with their feet with an
almighty 'kathump', which signals to the predator that it has been
spotted and to other kangaroos that danger is close by.
