Tree climbing Kangaroo species discovered

Date: 26 March 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • Australian researchers reported finding an extinct kangaroo species that once roamed the continent some 40,000 years ago. Its defining feature of climbing trees were identified through strongly curved claws, hands capable of grasping, and strong forelimbs and hindlimbs.
  • The specimens studied were found in the Nullarbor Plain Thylacoleo Caves and Mammoth Cave in the western part of Australia.
  • Researchers had to go through the process of identifying and describing the details of each bone in the discovered remains. Their efforts reveal that the arboreal macropods belong to a now-extinct species of wallaby.
