Tree-kangaroos are macropods adapted for life in trees. They inhabit the rainforests of New Guinea, far northeastern Queensland, and nearby islands. Although most are found in mountainous areas, several species also occur in lowlands, such as the aptly named Lowlands Tree-kangaroo. Most tree-kangaroos are considered threatened due to hunting and habitat loss.
Tree-Kangaroos are macropods (Marsupials including kangaroos and wallabees) found in New Guinea, Queensland and nearby islands who have adapted to spending most of their lives in trees with stronger forelimbs and longer tails than their earth bound relatives and are able to leap 30m from one tree to another and climb by sliding their forearms while being propelled upwards by their hind legs. They are slow and clumsy on the ground. They weigh up to 30lbs. en.wikipedia.org/... #Tree_Kangaroo #Animals
