Thanks Matthew and Carol for your kind comments.Writing on the Eastern Grey Kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) I indicated that this species was our largest kangaroo this is incorrect the Red Kangaroo (Macropus rufus). The error occurred as I was researching data on the Eastern Grey Kangaroo both size and biology and had a number of web pages open. Two of those websites were: The Koalaexpress website at http://www.koalaexpress.com.au/kangaroo%20facts.htm Some kangaroo facts and figures Common name Scientific name Height Weight Eastern Grey Macropus giganteus 3 - 8ft (0.9 - 2.4m) 40 - 200 lbs (18 - 95kg) Red kangaroo Macropus Rufus 3 - 9ft (0.9 - 2.7m) 40 - 150 lbs (18 - 70kg) Western Grey Macropus fuliginosus 3 - 7ft (0.9 - 2.1m) 63 - 120lbs (28 - 54kg)
