The tenkile (Dendrolagus scottae), also known as Scott's tree-kangaroo, is a species of tree-kangaroo in the Macropodidae family. It is endemic to a very small area of the Torricelli Mountains of Papua New Guinea. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It is threatened by habitat loss and hunting.
Tenkile has declined greatly over the past 50 years. It is currently restricted to three remote areas along the summit of the Torricelli Range.
