A tree kangaroo moseying along a fence at Canberra zoo. These endangered marsupials live in a narrow range of far north tropical Australia and Papua New Guinea. I have seen them in the wild, 20 meters up in tall trees, where they forage and spend most of their time. On the ground they hop like normal kangaroos do, too. They have more developed and much stronger front legs with sharp claws for climbing, and when in trees the long tail helps with balance.
Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend.

How wonderful............I would never have guessed this was any sort of kangaroo. It's not until you look at it carefully you can see the marsupial in it..!!

Such a lovely photo too..........very nicely captured Diana. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
