There are around a dozen different species of tree kangaroos in Australia and New Guinea, and figures vary according to the species.

Scott's Tree Kangaroo (also known as the Tenkile) of New Guinea is one of the most endangered species, and in 2001 there were believed to be only around 100 of these animals left. The population seems to be recovering slowly. The Wondiwoi tree kangaroo is critically endangered, possibly even already extinct, with an estimated population of no more than 50.

The population of Lumholtz's Tree kangaroo, on the other hand, is listed on the IUCN Red list of threatened Species as "least concern", with a population trend of 'stable', but figures are not available regarding how many are left.

Kangaroos can only be seen in the wild in Australia. They are, of course, best seen in the outback.You could see tree kangaroos in the wild in New Guinea as well.


The most common threats to Tree Kangaroos are habitat loss. Introduced predators such as wild dogs and foxes are also a threat.


The enemies of tree kangaroos are also their predators. The main predators of the tree kangaroo are quolls, dingoes (in Australia) and pythons. Wild dogs are also a major threat. Tree kangaroos of New Guinea are also threatened by the New Guinea harpy eagle.


Kangaroos in the wild do not eat vegetables. Kangaroos kept in captivity in sanctuaries will sometimes eat vegetables, but they prefer grasses, tree shoots and grains.


There may be kangaroos in African zoos, but there are definitely no wild kangaroos in Africa. Kangaroos are native to Australia alone and no other continent or island (although tree kangaroos can be found in New Guinea).


No. Tree kangaroos are not dangerous. They are shy and reclusive creatures, and difficult to see in the wild. They do not attack, nor jump down on people from branches high up in trees.


Tree kangaroos have their share of predators despite the fact they spend most of their time in trees. They are hunted by owls, pythons, and eagles. On rare trips to the ground, they are hunted by wild dogs and dingoes.

kangaroos are not found in the wild in England. Kangaroos are native to Australia.


Tree kangaroos are not extinct, but some species are endangered. The main danger to tree kangaroos is habitat loss. Destruction of rainforests means loss of habitat, and loss of food source. Unlike some other highly adaptable marsupials, tree kangaroos need a very specific habitat. Also, in parts of northern Australia, quite a few tree kangaroo deaths are caused by cars. Introduced species such as foxes and wild dogs are also a major problem.


Kangaroos have a wild, earthy smell.


The main predators of the tree kangaroo are quolls, dingoes (in Australia) and pythons. Wild dogs are also a major threat. Tree kangaroos of New Guinea are also threatened by the New Guinea harpy eagle. tree kangaroos are not carnivores, so they do not have prey. In their natural environment, tree kangaroos eat fruits, tree blossoms, juicy leaves or bark, ferns, and moss which they find in the rainforest habitat in which they live.


No. Kangaroos are native to Australia, while some tree kangaroos are also native to the island of New Guinea. While kangaroos have been introduced to some parts of the world, there have been no kangaroos introduced to any part of Africa.


Although the exact number is unknown, it is estimated that there are thousands of emerald tree boas left in the wild. As of August 2014, the species is not on the threatened list.

Introduced species such as foxes and wild dogs are also a major problem. It should be noted that not all species of tree kangaroos are endangered. One Australian species is listed as endangered, and that is the Lumholtz's Tree kangaroo. The Goodfellow's, Doria's, Matschie's, Tenkile and the Dingiso are the most endangered tree kangaroos in New Guinea.


There are about 2000 left in the wild


Kangaroos occur naturally in only two places - Australia and the island of New Guinea. Even then, only tree kangaroos are found in New Guinea. It is unknown how many countries that smaller kangaroo varieties, such as wallabies, have been introduced to.


i wish i knew im looking for the same answer right now


Kangaroos are native to Australia alone. If there are kangaroos in Montana, they will be wild ones which have escaped from zoos.


Yes. Kangaroos are wild animals. Whilst they can become used to humans, they cannot be truly domesticated.
