      its a Bennett's tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus bennettianus) from north Queensland, in the area north of the Daintree River

      2016 EDIT: actually a Lumholtz's tree kangaroo - my bad.

      @Chlidonias do we know of any Bennett's tree kangaroo (Dendrolagus bennettianus) in captivity? Or do you know if there were any in 2007 (so I can torture myself, since that was when I was last in NE Australia)?
    • Chlidonias
      No, there were none in 2007, and are none now. (With the caveat that there are several wildlife rescue places in northern Queensland, so it's entirely possible that there may be (an) animal(s) kept but not in a zoo situation).
    There are no comments to display.
