What is a marsupial?
A marsupial is a mammal.
Marsupials are native to Australia.
Marsupials include kangaroos, wallabies, opossums, wombats, bandicoots, bilbies, quokka, the Tasmanian devil, and similar animals.
Most mammals develop their baby inside the female’s body.
However, marsupials develop their babies in a pouch outside the body.
