Musky Rat-Kangaroo

About Musky Rat-Kangaroo

This kangaroo lives in the rain forests of Australia. It feeds on leaves, fruit, and small animals. This kangaroo is the only kangaroo to give birth to twins. It sleeps in a nest that is makes on the ground. It will carry the materials used to make its nest with its tail. This is unusual because other mammals usually carry these materials in their mouths or with their paws. Unlike the kangaroo, the Musky Rat-Kangaroo scurries around on all for legs instead of hopping.
