  8. 8. Anything extra: Each kangaroo has a unique pattern on there tail.</li></li></ul><li>Reproduction<br />How long is gestation? 39 to 46 days<br />How many young are born at a time? One<br />Who cares for the young? the mom does in her pouch<br />How long do the young stay with the parents? It becomes fully independent after 11 to 12 months<br />
  9. 9. Habitat<br />Where is it found in the world? Papua New Guinea tropical rainforest<br />The Goodfellow’s Tree kangaroo is arboreal<br />The Goodfellow’s tree kangaroo is Territorial but the males have larger home ranges<br />Where do they nest? In trees<br />They are endangered majors threats are hunting<br />
  10. 10. Food<br />What does it eat? It eats mainly leaves but they also eat fruits<br />What are its predators? Humans by hunting and habitat destruction<br />
  11. 11. Interesting Facts<br />They can be up 30 feet from the ground and jump and not get hurt.<br />They are slow and clumsy on the ground but bold and agile in trees.<br />
  12. 12. Physical Adaptations and How It Aids Survival<br />Its color allows it to camouflage it with the rainforest trees so predators don’t se it.<br />They have a non-prehensile tail and they use it as a rudder from branch to branch.<br />Strong arms used for climbing.<br />Pads on bottom of feet to give them good traction on slippery branches.<br />Pouch for young to go in to protect them from predators.<br />
  13. 13. More Physical Adaptations and How It Aids to Survival<br />6. The fur on back and neck grow in reverse to keep them dry when it rains.<br />7. Can move front paws above head to help them with climbing.<br />Eyes to see and nose to smell help it see where it going and to smell.<br />Have bigger and stronger forelimbs to help them climb.<br />Large specialized feet appropriate to be in trees.<br />
  14. 14. Behavioral Adaptations and How It Aids Survival<br />Efficient climbers to keep safe in trees from predators.<br />It eats leaves in trees so it doesn’t have to go the ground and it’s safer.<br />They are territorial and therefore know where the safe places are to live. They also protect their areas from other predators. <br />They are nocturnal so they are not visible prey. <br />They jump far and fast to get away from their predators. <br />
  15. 15. Zoo Observations<br />Size of habitat: I estimated about 15 feet long and 25 feet wide<br />There were 2 Goodfellow tree kangaroo<br />Food/water source: all the leaves and plants in the habitat and there was a stream in the habitat<br />When I saw my animal it was in a tree sleeping<br />Describe: Lots of plants one tree little waterfall on the of habitat mulch on the ground, it was very clean, lots of vegetation and was inside a building. <br />
  16. 16. Improvements to the zoo habitat<br />Bigger so they have more space and don’t just stay in one spot and if it was bigger they could have 3 tree kangaroos and more trees to climb in.<br />Specialized lighting for day time and night time so they can sleep at day time cause there nocturnal.<br />A little cubby that they can be alone and feel secure.<br />A play area like some nets with a platform up high so they can climb on them. <br />All I saw in the habitat was leaves so I think they should put some fruit in the habitat and a clean supply of water not just the stream.<br />
  17. 17. THE END<br />
