A koala joey is about the size of a jelly bean when born. That is around 20 millimetres. This is not even an inch long.
Can you find a measuring tape and work out how big that is, then hold you your fingers just 20 mm apart?
That is tiny isn’t it?
Joey weighs around 1 gram – you can hardly feel something that light!
Joey also has no hair, no ears, tiny arms and legs and is blind.
Yet that little joey knows how to crawl up mum’s stomach and into her pouch and how to grab hold of her teat and start drinking milk.
