How is a Red Kangaroo joey raised?

Red kangaroos have a gestation period of about 33 days. Baby red kangaroos are the size of a jellybean when they are born. They are born blind and hairless. A baby red kangaroo is born from the female's uterus and then climbs up the outer fur of the female and into the upward facing pouch where it attaches itself to a nipple until it becomes stronger. The mother kangaroo licks a path to the pouch to help guide the joey. Baby red kangaroos live in their mother's pouch and feed by drinking milk. The teat swells in the joey's mouth, securing it in place so it cannot be accidentally dislodged. The joey will usually stay in the pouch for about 6-9 months.

How long does a joey stay in the kangaroo's pouch?

The joey is in the mother kangaroo's pouch for about eight months (235 days), depending on the species. The young Joey continues to suckle until it is about 12 months old. For the animals most commonly recognised as kangaroos (e.g. Red kangaroos and Grey kangaroos), the average amount of time the baby kangaroo, or joey, stays in the pouch is about 7 - 8 months. This time is fairly consistent also with some of the smaller species of kangaroos, such as the potoroos and wallabies.
