As marsupials, kangaroo babies (called joeys) stay in their mothers’ pouches for up to 200 days before being fully able to venture off into the world on their own. Red kangaroos can be found nearly anywhere in Australia, except for the extreme east, north and southwest of the continent. In those areas, you’re more likely to encounter the antilopine, eastern gray or western gray kangaroos.
- Scientific Name: Macropus rufus
- Characteristics: This kangaroo mama is resting with her tail on the ground, and her joey peeking out for a look around. He’s getting pretty big, so it might be time for him to leave the pouch pretty soon! This figure is packed with details on both mother and baby, and is individually hand painted so each one is unique.
- Size and Color: This kangaroo mother is 3 ½ inches tall and about 4 3/4 inches long from the tip of her snout to the end of her tail, nearly the size of an 11 oz. ceramic mug. The light orange red coloration denotes this mother and baby as red kangaroos, with the characteristic white underside and brown tips on the hands, feet, ears and tail.
