#FactToday: Did you know kangaroos have 3 vaginas?

Female kangaroos have two uteri and three vaginas.

The outside two are for sperm and lead to two uteruses while the middle one is for giving birth.

#FactToday: Did you know kangaroos have 3 vaginas?

The urinary tract goes through the middle of the three vaginas, which may be why joeys are so small (40,000 times smaller than adult kangaroos) — there’s no room for a bigger birth canal with the urinary tract in the way.

Because they have two uteruses plus a pouch, to go with the two sperm-vaginas, male kangaroos often have two-pronged penises, that explains why female kangaroos are perpetually pregnant.
