No Bathroom Breaks For Joey

Ever wonder where a baby kangaroo (joey) goes to the bathroom?

Joeys actually pee and poop while in their mother's pouch. When they're small they don't produce much, and when they're bigger the pouch's lining absorbs some of it. It gets kind of smelly and dirty in there, so moms clean out their pouches every so often.
