In upper canopies of forests in Indonesia can be found the vulnerable arboreal marsupial-Sulawesi Bear Cuscus. Like a platypus, it has parts of different animals combined: circular bulging lemur eyes staring from a possum-like head belonging to a thick, dark color, bear-like body.
As climate change increases temperature and reduces trees, the average 2ft diurnal phalanger will reduce in size; along with their tail and claws because both are used for traveling in trees. They will also become crepuscular/nocturnal and have algae grow on their fur to camouflage better. They will have a higher nutrient folivorous diet to move faster. Additionally, in the future swamps, the cuscus will commonly be among wet logs floating on the water with webbed paws. Their fur will become thinner, making them less valuable to poachers, giving their species hope in the future.
