The Western Grey Kangaroo is native to south-western and
central south Australia. Its coat is usually a dusky brown
rather than the paler grey of the Eastern Grey or the
reddish brown of the Red Kangaroo.
It is a large kangaroo, with the males reaching some 7 feet
in height. They live in groups, referred to as mobs. Males
are called bucks or jacks, females are does or jills and the
young are joeys.
The Western Grey, like most large kangaroos, rests for most
of the day and is active mainly from late afternoon through
the night to early morning.
