Do Kangaroo's live in trees? Well.... yes!
The Dendrolagus goodfellowi or more commonly known as the Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo, are native to Papua New Guinea in the central highlands.
Very little is known of their behaviour in the wild. Once thought to be solitary animals current research has shown that they remain in small family groups. It is generally understood that a male will have a harem of up to three females! Sadly the Tree Kangaroo is considered an endangered species.
If you haven't seen one for yourself you can see Tree Kangaroos here at the Sanctuary.
