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.
