The baby’s name is Polly and she’s a Matschie’s Tree Kangaroo, an endangered species, with only a few dozen in captivity in the United States.
The kangaroos have a reddish-brown and white coat with small ears and long tails. They’re found in the rainforests of Papau New Guinea, where they spend most of their time climbing trees as high as 11,000 feet. However, the species is threatened by logging, mining, and drilling. Six Matschie’s Tree Kangaroos were born in captivity in the United States last year as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquarium’s Species Survival Program.
