Baby Kangaroos

Baby kangaroos are some of the cutest things in the world.

Like other marsupials, kangaroos are born tiny and undeveloped, and about the size of a pea they travel to their mother's pouch where they develop.


In the pouch they grow bigger and bigger, and once they are big enough they leave the pouch.

From then on they still stay with their mum until they are big enough to be independent.

By the time there is a new baby in the pouch.

Kangaroos are called baby boomers - having one baby gestating, the other in the pouch, and a third one beside almost any time.
