Kangaroos Genus Macropus
Kangaroos
These are our larger herbivorous animals, that can often be seen in their natural environment in national parks and outback regions. Kangaroos include the Red (or Big Red), Eastern Grey and Western Grey Kangaroos.

Australia is also home to a unique genetic strain of the Western Grey, that has become a popular tourist attraction - the white kangaroos at Bordertown Wildlife Park in South Australia. These are not albino kangaroos, as they have dark eyes, not the red/pink eyes.

An adult white male was brought to the park in 1980. The first white joey was born in 1984, followed by a second two years later. The breeding program has seen the population grow, with white kangaroos being sent to other wildlife parks and zoos around the country, including Mansfield Zoo in Victoria, Wave Rock Wildlife Park in Western Australia and Featherdale Wildlife Park in New South Wales, just to name a few.
