Do male kangaroos have pouches?


6 Answers

According to wonderopolis: Since pouches are for babies to stay in, only female kangaroos have them. Male kangaroos who want pockets simply have to wear pants.

No, male kangaroos have no need for a pouch (or so called "pocket") as they can’t produce milk. Only female kangaroos have pouches as part of their reproductive system to be able to perform the child rearing.

Only female kangaroos have a pouch. A kangaroo's pouch is called a "marsupium" , and is used to complete a joeys' postnatal development.

No. Only female kangaroos have pouches because they do the child rearing. Male kangaroos have no need for a pouch, as they can't produce milk.
