    Meiosis is the way that human gametes (sex cells) divide. And each of those cells has 23 chromosomes.

    @SamuelAlden917 Kangaroos have 8 chromosomes in their gametes, after meiosis. But I get the feeling this question is asking about humans. Humans have 23, in each gamete.

    I read that it's most members of the Macropus genus. Except for the red kangaroo (Macropus rufus).

    @Bri7ski Each of the four cells produced through Meiosis is called a "gamete." If you read the first paragraph of this article, you'll see that human gametes each have 23 chromosomes: http://www.3dscience.com/Resources/Reproductive_Cells.php
