General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Not necessarily red. Their muzzle is much like a dogs, broad and solid.
Can grow very large (1.8m+), but the females are much smaller than the males.
The females & joey's are easily confused with Euros. If you can get close enough you'll see the smooth hair on the back, and the muzzle has white around the nose.
