Dendrolagus ursinus or Tree Kangaroos are marsupials of the genus Dendrolagus, adapted for arboreal locomotion.

They inhabit the tropical rainforests of New Guinea and far northeastern Queensland, along with some of the islands in the region.

All tree-kangaroos are considered threatened due to hunting and habitat destruction. They are the only true arboreal macropods.

Tree Kangaroos inhabit the tropical rainforests of New Guinea, far northeastern Australia, and some of the islands in the region, in particular, the Schouten Islands and the Raja Ampat Islands.

Dendrolagus ursinus or Tree Kangaroos must find places comfortable and well-adapted for breeding, as they only give birth to one joey per year.

They are known to have one of the most relaxed and leisurely birthing seasons. They breed cautiously in the treetops during the monsoon season.

Their habitats are breeding grounds for danger, as they can easily fall prey to their natural predator, the Amethystine python, which also climbs and lives in the treetops.

Tree Kangaroos are known to be able to live in both mountainous regions and lowland locations.

Tree Kangaroos have several adaptations to an arboreal life-style. Dendrolagus ursinus or Tree Kangaroos have long and broad hind feet with long curved nails.

They also have a sponge-like grip on their paws and soles of their feet. Tree Kangaroos have a much larger and pendulous tail than terrestrial kangaroos, giving them enhanced balance while moving about the trees.

Locomotion on the ground is by hopping, as with true kangaroos. Like terrestrial kangaroos, Tree Kangaroos do not sweat to cool their bodies, rather, they lick their forearms and allow the moisture to evaporate in an adaptive form of behavioural thermoregulation.

The main diet of the Dendrolagus ursinus or Tree Kangaroo is leaves and fruit that it gathers from the trees, but occasionally scavenged from the ground. Tree Kangaroos will also eat grains, flowers, various nuts, sap and tree bark.
