Female kangaroos carry their young (joeys) in a pouch. Likewise, kangaroo words contain another word (a joey) within themselves. A joey word is a synonym of the kangaroo word, and the letters must be in the same order.

Example: "rapscallion" contains the word "rascal": RApSCALlion

See if you can find the joey words in these kangaroo words:
1. because
2. astound
3. municipality
4. charisma
5. damsel

See if you can find two joey words in this kangaroo word:
6. masculine

What fun! I didn't get the first one and I could fin just "man" in the last one. I like teasers that make me think , but are easy enough to have some success. I like the concept. Good job!
