Early last week, I received this postcard from Australia.
Isn't this baby kangaroo adorable?! :)
A female kangaroo gives birth to a baby, or joey, once a year. A newborn joey can be anywhere from 0.2 inches long (the size of a grain of rice) to 0.9 inches long (the size of a honeybee).
Immediately after birth, the hairless and blind joey crawls into its mother's pouch. Inside the pouch, it nurses and continues to develop. A joey spends 7-8 months living inside its mother's pouch.
