The Eastern Grey Kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) is a marsupial found in the eastern third of Australia, with a population of several million. It is also known as the Forester kangaroo.

The Eastern Grey Kangaroo is not under any major threats. However, it is regarded as a pest in many areas and is killed under license.

It is also hunted commercially for meat and leather. Its population is more limited in some areas, particularly in locations that are densely settled, and there is some doubt whether they will be able to sustain present hunting levels.

Some locally abundant populations are culled by state wildlife agencies to reduce the impact of grazing on native vegetation, as well as to improve animal welfare.

The Macropus giganteus or Eastern Grey Kangaroo is the second largest and heaviest living marsupial and native land mammal in Australia.

An adult male will commonly weigh around 110 to 146 lb. whereas females weigh around 37 to 88 lb. They have a powerful tail that is over 3 ft 3 in. long in adult males.

Macropus giganteus or Eastern Grey Kangaroos are polygynous animals. Adult males take part in ritualized fights with rivals, and the dominant male being the most likely the only one to mate with the available females. Breeding continues throughout the year, peaking in summer.

The young is born following a gestation period of 36 days. At about 9 months old, the Joey leaves its mother’s pouch for short periods, exploring the world with very brief little hops around the mother.

The Joey leaves its mother’s pouch at 11 months old, though it is still suckling. When the Joey is 18 months old it is fully weaned and leaves the pouch permanently. Females are reproductively mature at about 20 to 22 months, and males at 43 months.
