A WILD ENCOUNTER WL100948
The Lumholtz's tree kangaroo lives in the Wet Tropics rainforest of tropical north Queensland centred on the Atherton Tablelands— between the Daintree Rainforest and the Cardwell Range. Due to their remarkable camouflage, shy behavior, and preference for staying high in the canopy, it can be a challenge to spot them in the wild. However, during my exploration of a forest on the Atherton Tableland in north Queensland, I have been fortunate enough to witness several of these delightful tree-dwelling macropods. The local Indigenous people refer to Lumhotz tree kangaroos as Boongarry, Mabi, or Maple.
