Everyone has heard of the Australian kangaroo that hops across the earth at speed, but have you heard of a tree kangaroo?
- Tree kangaroos can leap 60 feet (18m) to the ground from trees without getting hurt.
- Instead of sweating, tree kangaroos lick their forearms and allow the evaporation to help cool their bodies.
- Young tree kangaroos are called joeys.
- Tree kangaroos move with agility in trees and can leap downward several yards to another tree or the ground. When they descend a tree more slowly, they back down.
