October is Tree-Kangaroo Month in Fruityland


Where is Tree-Kangaroos Natural Habitat?

Tree kangaroos inhabit the lowland and mountainous rainforests of Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and the far north of Queensland, Australia. Living up in the foliage, these species look like a cross between a kangaroo and a lemur. Fourteen species of tree kangaroos inhabit the forests of Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Australia. They weigh up to 32 pounds and measure about 30 inches, not including their 16-to-34-inch tails. In 1990, a new species of tree kangaroo was discovered in the Torricelli Mountains of Papua New Guinea. Dubbed the golden-mantled tree kangaroo, this species has a chestnut-brown coat, pale belly, and a double stripe of gold down its back. Like in many places around the world, deforestation impacts wildlife habitat. It’s the same where tree kangaroos live. Many tree kangaroo species already exist in low numbers and most populations are decreasing
