At the time of birth the Koala’s Joey has slightly and reasonably developed small limbs. These limbs help the Koala Joey to grab and move towards the pouch.

Usually after the birth, within 10 to 15 minutes, the Koala Joey is already present within the pouch of its mother. The baby is under-developed at that time, but its limbs are reasonably developed which help the Koala Joey to make a move. It does not even possess visible eyes at that time as well.

It is a very important question in this regard that how the Koala Joey does knows that it has to move directly into the pouch rather than going anywhere else? It could fall down as well. The core reasoning behind this includes a very well developed sense of smell among the Koalas right from their birth. Whenever, the Koala Joey is born, it knows exactly even at that time, that where the pouch of its mother is and it smells the milk fragrance of its mother.
