Guarding the Family by =charreed suggester writes, "I came across this piece after discovering the Unusual Anthro Calendar and it's one of my favourites. The roo's fur contrasts well with the greens of the forest and the detailing is great. There is nice depth to this picture and the little one is just adorable. I think this picture deserves more notice." ( Suggested by eus and Featured by Katmomma )

I remember when I was like 10 years old or something, on a school bus for a class trip, we were playing that game where you say an animal and then the next person has to say another animal that starts with the last letter of that animal, etc etc. I ended up saying tree kangaroo at some point and NO ONE would believe me that they actually exist! :< So now I have a soft spot for them and enjoy seeing them just to prove those dumb kids wrong that were making fun of me.

Aww! No fair! See, I should have been around because I would have whipped out my pocket animal encyclopaedia I carried with me at all times to prove them wrong! ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed the piece!

Nope, just an illustration for a calendar! I still have a few left- it'd be nice to sell them, but I'm wondering if it's getting to be too late! [link]

These tree kangaroos remind me of Snarf from "ThunderCats"
As seen here: [link]

This looks really good!

Haha, they do kinda look like Snarf! I wonder if Snarf's character designers were looking at tree kangaroos the day they drew him ;)
