Welcome to our Sunday Selfie post. We look after around 80 Kangaroos, plus around another 1,000 native animals too. This means we have lots of great photos, but we snapped these photos yesterday, using a small camera. We were able to capture the joey climbing into it’s mother’s pouch. Hope you enjoy the photos.
After close to a year in their mother’s pouch, the joey then lives next to their mother for another full year -they are called “at foot joeys.” If separated from their mother, very few “at foot joeys” can survive without their mother, so it takes two years for a joey to become self sufficient.
Female joeys never leave home, even when fully matured, and stay within the mob for the rest of their life. It takes 10 YEARS for a male kangaroo to fully mature.
Hope you enjoyed our photographs and we’ll be posting more of our animals next week too. Don’t forget to join our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop – it stays open all week. Hope you’ll come back and visit us again. *waves paw* :=o)
