All the latest updates and news from the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum, and Zoo, one of Bermuda's leading visitor attractions!
The Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo [BAMZ] has welcomed a new tree kangaroo to their exhibits. Karau [pronounced KUH-row] comes to BAMZ from Lincoln Park Children’s Zoo in Chicago.
Karau is now settled into his enclosure in the Australasia Exhibit. The tree roo which turns two in September, belongs to the Species Survival Plan [SSP], a program run by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to protect the world’s most endangered species.
The World Wildlife website says, “Tree-kangaroos are macropods adapted for life in trees. Unlike their close cousins, their arms and legs are approximately the same length. Tree kangaroos also have much stronger fore-limbs to help in climbing the trees they inhabit.
“Living in the trees, the tree kangaroo eats mostly leaves and fruit, though they’ll eat out of the trees as well as collecting fruit that has fallen to the ground. The animals will also eat other items such as grains, flowers, sap, eggs, young birds, and even bark. Their teeth are adpated for eating and tearing leaves.”
