Marsupials differ from all other mammals in the way their young develop and are cared for. At birth, baby marsupials are tiny and only partly developed. The reason is the short time spent within the mother's body. It may be as little as 8 to 12 days with some of the smallest species; with the largest it is usually no more than 30 to 40 days. At birth a baby kangaroo is hardly an inch long and not even fully formed. Its tail and hind legs are like tiny stumps. Its eyes are closed, and its ears are not fully formed. Its mouth is just a tiny hole. Only its front feet are well developed, with toes and nails. As soon as the tiny baby kangaroo is born, it begins to climb through the mother's fur toward the opening of her pouch. It seems to be guided by instinct. However, the mother licks a path for it through her fur. Climbing hand over hand, the baby reaches the opening of the pouch and pops in. Once inside, the baby quickly searches out a nipple and hangs. The little kangaroo remains firmly attached there for a number of weeks, nursing and developing. It grows, becomes covered with fur, its eyes open, and its' ears form. Finally it can let go of the nipple and peer out of the pouch. When it is several months old, it starts to venture outside. But if danger threatens, it pops right back. By the time the baby is six months old, it is too big to fit into the pouch. Now it eats grass' and vegetable matter, like its mother. It is well on the way to growing up and taking care of itself.
