Kangaroo Joey / A female Eastern Grey kangaroo gives birth to a tiny joey that weighs about 2gm and is the size of a jellybean. It is pink, hairless and its eyes are closed. Before the birth, the mother kangaroo licks her fur to make a track so that the joey can climb up into her pouch. It's a long way for the newborn to climb using its small front legs.
Newborn Animals Aren't Always Cute (but they get there eventually!) What is it???? Look at the feet & tail & remember to be this little, it must survive in momma's pouch until large enough to make it's own way in the world! It's a newborn Kangaroo!
