Kangaroo Life Cycle Stages

Before you start this fun coloring activity it is good to familiarize yourself and your little ones with the stages of the kangaroo life cycle. This four-part cycle consists of neonate (the newborn stage), joey (the young stage), adolescent (the teenage stage), and adult (fully grown).

Neonate Kangaroos

When a female kangaroo gives birth, the baby kangaroo is called a neonate. It is born very small—about the size of a large bean—and needs to be kept warm and safe until it is strong enough to begin its journey into the world.

Joey Kangaroos

As the baby grows stronger, it starts venturing out of its mother’s pouch for brief periods of time. At this stage, it is referred to as a joey and it continues to grow while drinking milk from its mother’s pouch.

Adolescent Kangaroos

When the joey gets older and larger, it begins to spend more time outside of its mother’s pouch and starts grazing on grasses and plants along with her. This stage is known as adolescence and lasts until the joey becomes sexually mature at around two years old.

Adult Kangaroos

Finally, when the adolescent reaches sexual maturity at two years old, he or she is considered an adult kangaroo! A reminder that one day your little one may become an adult themselves!
