Tree kangaroo joey at the Zoo

johnboy 23 January 2014

The ABC informs us that the National Zoo and Aquarium’s Goodfellow’s tree kangaroos have been getting jiggy and produced a rare yet super-cute joey:

A pair of rare tree kangaroos has started a family at the National Zoo and Aquarium in Canberra, with the arrival of little Mani.

Goodfellow’s tree kangaroos are rarely bred in captivity and the new joey is an important boost for an international conservation program.

The species is critically endangered due to predators in far-north Queensland and illegal forestry in Papua New Guinea.
