Mystery Marsup

Яя
ial of Australia.

Variant name: Kuperree.

Distribution: Eyre Peninsula, South Australia.

Significant sighting: The Aborigines of Port 
Lincoln had a legend of the extinction of a 
Giant kangaroo named Kuperree.

Possible explanation: The Eastern gray kangaroo 
(Macropus giganteus) was much larger during 
the Late Pleistocene, perhaps twice as massive. 
Specimens now grow no greater than a 
body length of 5 feet, with a tail at least 3 feet 
long. Buried in a swamp near Lancefield, Victoria, 
are the remains of thousands of giant 
Macropus fossils that died about 26,000 years 
ago.
