Macropus giganteus Eastern Grey Kangaroo

Being marsupial, kangaroos give birth to a tiny joey the size of a jelly bean. It crawls straight away from the mother’s cloaca, up through the fur on the outside of her pouch, then down into the pouch where it attaches itself to a nipple. It has no fur and its eyes are closed. Its ears are plastered to the side of its head. The mother can produce two kinds of milk from her two nipples. She may be feeding the new tiny baby on one nipple and a fully furred juvenile, who does not need to be in the pouch any more, on the other. The bigger joey gets the richer milk.

The Kangaroos at Potoroo Palace are friendly. They wander amongst visitors.
