A Baby Koala Joey Lives in her Mother's Pouch for 9 to 10 Months


The baby Koala Joeys live and stay within her mother’s pouch for almost normally around 9 to 10 months. This makes almost 3 quarters of the year. The Koala Joeys are not born within the pouch but rather they make their journey to the pouch after their birth. It is highly amazing that being so small, they can still make a journey at the time of their birth straight inside the pouch of their mothers.

This makes the Koala mothers' pouch for their baby Koala Joeys as a complete health package.
