it feels like we have walked into a living fairy tale. Our heads are literally in. The clouds, though, were just a few degrees south of the equator were bathed in cool mist were 10,000 feet up in the mountains. Here, the trees are cloaked in clouds. The ground is carpeted with thick green moss. In the cloud forest of Papua New Guinea, ferns grow into trees. Trees like those the dinosaurs, new moss and ferns, vines and orchids hang from branches like the beards of wise old wizards. In a place like this, we half expect, Ah, hobbit or a troll to show up, but it's better than that. The animals who really do live here are even more fantastic, and directly above us is one of them. This is incredible. Lisa Dabiq, 45 can't help but exclaim each time she sees one in the wild. She's the scientific leader of our research team, and she's fixed her binoculars on one of the rarest, strangest and least understood creatures on the planet. More than 80 feet above her high in one of the tall, ancient trees, a kangaroo is looking down at us. A kangaroo in a tree. That's just what Lisa thought when she met her first tree kangaroo about 20 years ago. The encounter to a place at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington. Lisa was a graduate student in animal behavior. She had never heard of a tree kangaroo before, but meeting one changed her life.
