Red Kangaroos are the world's largest living marsupial. Adults can reach up to 1.4 long with a tail length of 1 m. Other than their size they can be distinguished from other kangaroo species by their red-brown, rather than grey, fur and white-striped face. They live in the arid interior of Australia's mainland. They have no natural predators and are so numerous in some areas that they are considered pests and are commercially hunted.

This specimen came from New South Wales. The date of collection is unknown.
