Tree Kan­ga­roos

Little Angel - - CONTENTS -

Up, up & away

Un­like reg­u­lar roos, tree kan­ga­roos are pretty slow and clumsy on the ground. They’re spe­cially de­signed to live in the tree­tops where they hop, leap and slide with amaz­ing agility thanks to their strong legs and sharp claws.

Menu must-haves Tree kan­ga­roos eat flow­ers, leaves, fruit, bark and tree sap. Some­times they also eat eggs. These mar­vel­lous mam­mals are found in Aus­tralia, Pa­pua New Guinea and In­done­sia.

Baby love When tree kan­ga­roos are born they spend about nine months in­side their mother’s pouch. Fe­males usu­ally have one joey each year.

Please help Tree kan­ga­roos are en­dan­gered. Their trees are of­ten cut down, leav­ing them home­less. So sad!
