Conservation Status: CRITICALLY ENDANGERED
Common Name: Kuskus
Scientific Name: n/a
This hairy marsupial that lives on the top of the trees is yet another critically endangered animal known as the Kuskus.
The Kuskus has sharp claws and a long, powerful tail that helps it climb tall trees and swing from branches to branches. Its population is carefully monitored as a rare species and can be found in the province of Irian Jaya, Sulawesi, and Maluku.
Not much is known about this funny-looking rascal other than its appearance and habitat, but it is obvious that deforestation would be a major threat to these arboreal creatures.
