Forester Kangaroo (Macropus giganteus) is the largest marsupial in Tasmania and the second largest in the world -- males can reach over 60 kg and, when literally on tippy toes, stand 2 m tall! Colour varies from light brownish grey to grey. They have relatively large ears and differ from the other two species in having hair between the nostrils and upper lip. They often make clucking sounds between themselves and give a guttural cough when alarmed. The Forester kangaroo is restricted to northeastern Tasmania and small areas in central Tasmania. The species is common on mainland Australia, where it is commonly known as the grey kangaroo.
