    I had never heard of a tree kangaroo and would not believe one existed if I hadnt seen this one in Singapore zoo last year. :)

    I heard its one of the rare species...

    I have seen it since i am from singapore..hehe.

    They are considered endangered also i think. I heard they recently found the tree kangaroo in indonesia's jungle (which is still untouched) and found some new species of animals & insects.

    That is a nice pic...i like it :)

    Nice pic of an unusual creature. With that tail, he's got quite a counterbalancing mechanism; no wonder he does well in trees.:D

    They are about the size of a small Wallaby.:)

    If you are ever there Singapore zoo is well worth a visit.:)
