Young Kangaroo Feeding in the Pouch

Top
Inside the pouch the young finds and grasps on of the four teats. From this it draws nourishment during the ensuing 8 months and for a further 4 months after leaving the pouch.

Kangaroo research was carried out by CSIRO from the early 1960s to the late 1980s. The process of kangaroo reproduction was revealed for the first time by CSIRO researchers, G B Sharman and J H Calaby, providing a basis for significant research by universities and state departments from the late 1960s. A series of 13 images makes up this series DA1487, DA1497 to DA1507 and DA1509.
