Meet Kofi

Kofi is our first Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo. The fluffy, blue-eyed adorable creature loves climbing trees and boiled eggs. Calling dense tropical rainforests home, Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroos are perfectly adapted to life in the tree tops. They are herbivores, feeding on leaves, flowers and fruit.

Did you know?

Although labelled a ‘kangaroo’, Kofi and other Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroos are one of 14 Tree Kangaroo species that appear and act much differently to the kangaroos you are probably familiar with. They have adapted to life in the trees, they have shorter limbs, they have sharp claws and they have the ability to move their back legs independently.
