After a gestation period of 33 to 35 days, a joey weighing less than one gram is born. The pink, jellybean-like joey spends six months in the pouch drinking milk.
By 12 months, the joey has completely weaned and is independent from the mother.
To see this species in the wild, we suggest Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve, Queensland.
