Australian Animal Facts – The Tree Kangaroo

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.
