Common Wallaroo has coarse, shaggy fur ranging from light grey to black. Their tails are short and thick that can be used as a third leg to support them while sitting.
They have wide and short hind feet with powerful legs, allowing them to jump up to 4m (13 ft). There are roughened soles on the bottom of their foot for extra grip to adapt to leaping around on rocks.
Males will fight with each other to display their dominance to attract a mate; they use powerful feet for kickboxing until one surrenders. They are herbivores and generally graze on soft-textured grasses and shrubs within their home range.
