Eastern Grey Kangaroos (juvenile joeys)

Macropus giganteus

Description:

The eastern grey kangaroo is a marsupial found in southern and eastern Australia. This is the cutest little mob of roos I have ever seen. There were six young juvenile joeys in their own little play group, four of which were very young, and one of them was tiny, most likely still a pouch joey. I didn't see any adults at all.

Habitat:

Spotted in Girraween National Park in southeast Queensland. Here's some park info - http://www.rymich.com/girraween/ Heavily wooded area. Also plenty of fresh grass due to recent rains.

Notes:

Not the sharpest photos. I was quite dark due to heavy clouds, and pouring with rain for most of the day.
