I'm a Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo

The Goodfellow's Tree Kangaroo is a marsupial. They are a superb climbers and are capable of leaping long distances and are able to jump from up to 9 metres down from one tree to another. 

They spend most of their time living in the trees but will occasionally forage on the ground in search of food. This largely nocturnal species is most active at night feeding on leaves of fruit from trees but also flowers and grass found along the forest edges.
