Although this little joey may look old enough to survive on its own, some kangaroo infants will stay in their motherÕs pouch for up to 200 days! Even then, they may come back and spend time in the pouch until theyÕre strong enough to survive without help from their mother.
Scientific Name: Macropus rufus
Characteristics: This magnificent marsupial family is looking for a new place to live, and would love to go home with you! Hand painted and professionally sculpted, this figurine is wonderful as a toy, teaching aid, piece of dŽcor, or even as a gift.
Size and Color: Depending on the species, kangaroos can be any color ranging between gray, tawny, and reddish-brown. 3.5 inches tall and 4 inches long, both dimensions of this figurine are about an inch larger than a deck of cards stood on its side.

All four kangaroo species, including the red kangaroo, the eastern grey kangaroo, the western gray kangaroo, and the antilopine kangaroo, are classified as animals of least concern on the conservation status spectrum. All kangaroo species are endemic to Australia, and itÕs estimated that their current population is over 35 million individuals. If you decide to take this mom and her baby home, make sure to pick up a few more kangaroo figurines for a full mob (the proper term for a group of kangaroos)!
