The Dingiso has a distinctive pattern of black and white fur; it has a white belly, and a black head, back and limbs. Unlike other tree kangaroos, it spends little time in the trees.
The Dingiso is most common in the western part of Irian Jaya because it is protected by members of the Moni tribe, for whom it is an ancestor. The species epithet, mbaiso, means "the forbidden animal" in Moni. It remains common in the west because of the protection conferred on it by the Moni people. For many Moni, it is an ancestor which must never be harmed.
The Dingiso was described and named in 1995 by Australian Museum zoologist Tim Flannery, Indonesian zoologist Boeadi and Australian anthropologist Alexandra Szalay. The Australian Museum is the oldest Museum in Australia, with an international reputation in the fields of Natural history and Anthropology.
