they are kangaroos that live in the trees, about the size of a koala. Fascinating things! :) They eat the leaves and are mainly in the northern tropical rainforests.

Gooeyducks (as they are pronounced) aren't so little, as clams go.

That one with mountain and lowland is quite mistakable..

There is also a mountain and a lowland form of tapirs, anoas and some others...

Loads of more mountain ones like lion, goat, and others, no idea how many of those have a lowland counterpart though. But not a very distinguishable name

Lowland _____s are pretty famous though. Not sure if I'd heard of the mountain variety, but it rings a very faint bell.

Never heard of an 'Antilopine Kangaroo'. I've lived and worked all over Australia and never heard anyone shout "Oh look, there goes an Antilopine Kangaroo!"

lol, I guessed a few things, frogs , other stuff sloths, etc and I have heard of a read Kangaroo so I tried it haha

I admit I have never heard of tree or antilopine .. I guess its not common in Australia, not like dropbears, redbacks, funnel webs, or the snakes that are all quite toxic to us humans if they happen to bite us.

Got few of em...could've added silverback for gorilla-the best clue i guess

I think silverback is just the name of the older gorilla who is leader of the troop, however as pointed out above as it stands tapir is a valid answer, so maybe add cross river for gorilla

Double brain dart: when reading your comment I was like: huh I had that thought as well for some reason, why would that be? Had to Google hermit frog to understand the connection :P
