Kangaroo Island - Kangaroos

The Island's isolation has seen some species evolve differently from the mainland species. This is evident in the KI Kangaroo, a subspecies of the Western Grey Kangaroo which is smaller, darker and has longer fur than its mainland counterpart. Kangaroos and wallabies can be seen over most of the Island.

These are beauties, here in Yorkshire the only large wild animals we have are deer and I have only seen one in the last year or so.

LOve the white/cream background, it really sets it off.
