When we think of Australia, it seems kangaroos are one of those that instantly pop up in our minds. Members of the marsupials, these creatures have become the living icon of the country but over the years, you have probably not heard of the tree-kangaroo.

In a sense, tree-kangaroos are very much similar to regular kangaroos. The only difference is that they are fluffier and, more importantly, resemble small tree-dwelling bears. Hence the name. Although most of them call the Land Down Under a home, some of them exist in New Guinea.

Tree-kangaroos are also known for being elusive. This is why little to none is known about them and their behavior. While it is true that their exact population remains to be seen, they are said to face the constant threat of being hunted. This is not to mention the ongoing habitat destruction.

Researchers believe that if these threats continue, these creatures will soon become extinct. Interestingly, the first tree-kangaroo born in captivity in more than three decades was welcomed to the world. It was held at the Perth Zoo, representing a hope for these creatures to survive.

Well, without further ado, here are the lovely tree-kangaroos from Australia. You are going to love them!
