Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo

About Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo

This kangaroo species is very different from the well-known one we think of when we hear the word kangaroo.

First of all, the front legs of the Tree Kangaroo are almost the same length as its back legs. It does not have the very large back feet large kangaroos use for jumping. It has soft pads on the bottom of its feet, and its claws, which it uses to climb trees, are sharp and curved. Its tail is the same width all the way to the end where it has a fluffy tip.

The Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo spends most of its time in the canopy of the tropical rain forest. It eats leaves and fruit. It sleeps during the day and eats at night.
