The female kangaroo is usually pregnant in permanence, except on the day she gives birth; however, she has the ability to freeze the development of an embryo until the previous joey is able to leave the pouch. This is known as diapause, and will occur in times of drought and in areas with poor food sources. In addition, the mother is able to produce two different kinds of milk simultaneously for the newborn and the older joey still in the pouch.
