This is the smallest of all kangaroos.
It is restricted to the floor of the tropical rainforests of north-eastern Australia.
It is one of Australia’s two strictly daytime active marsupials.
It is also unique within the superfamily for several features; it's bounding rather than hopping gait, (more like a rabbit), it’s tail which can curl around to carry nesting material, and it’s habitat of usually having two young at a time (rather than one)..

Kangaroos evolved from possum-like ancestors, but any similarity to possums has disappeared in modern kangaroos - except for the musky rat-kangaroo.
The musky rat kangaroo retains a number of possum features including a great toe or hallux on the hind feet and a system of gripping grooves on its foot pads.
