Vogelkop Tree Kangaroo
Illustration - Peter Schouten
The Vogelkop Tree-kangaroo is restricted to the Vogelkop and Fak Fak peninsulars of West Papua where it is found at elevations from sea level to approximately 2500m. It occurs mostly in montane rainforest and its distribution could be as large as 30,000 square kilometres.
The VogelkopTree-kangaroo has a black back with a pale belly and pale/reddish cheeks. It also has tufted ears and a white tail tip. Unfortunately there is no data on the weight of this species and little on anything else. A lot of work needs to be carried out on the Vogelkop Tree Kangaroo.
