Details

Melbourne Zoo has been caring for wildlife for 150 years and is currently home to three Goodfellow's Tree-Kangaroos. This endangered species is mostly brown in colour with golden yellow loms, a long mottled golden yellow and brown tail and two golden yellow dorsal stripes. Goodfellow's Tree-Kangaroos are primarily browsing herbivores, but can be considered omnivores, occasionally consuming small birds and eggs. They live in mountainous forests and can leap to the ground from heights of more than 18 metres.

This coin was released on the 2nd July 2012 and is the 5th in the series commemorating 150 years of the Melbourne Zoo
