【Adventure World】 A baby of red kangaroo is growing in a mother’s stomach bag!

Adventure world Akakangaroo baby is growing in the mother’s stomach bag! I started to show my face! ………………………………………………………………………………………… In Adventure World (Shirahama-cho, Wakayama Prefecture), baby of red kangaroo was born, and baby who grew up in mother’s stomach bag began to appear in the beginning of February 2019. As we were born in size of approximately 2cm in length, we did not check at the time of birth and watched. It has grown steadily, and recently it has been more common to leave her face in the morning’s stomach bag. Akakangaroo’s parents and children can be viewed at Safari World’s Australia area.
