Animals With Marsupial Humps

Marsupial newborns are underdeveloped. The mother carries the infant in a pouch after delivery. Placental mammals dominate. Like humans, placental mammals have fully grown young.

American opossums exist. Each litter will have one baby. On her back, she teaches children survival skills. Slow mother endangers children.


The glider may leap off a tree and stretch its limbs to collect air and glide farther. Gliders use this to travel between trees or avoid predators.

Like a medium-sized dog, they're stocky and muscular. They're the largest carnivorous marsupial and have the hardest bite. 80-degree jaws can crush bone.

Most associate marsupials with kangaroos. Probably because of the joeys. Newborn joeys are lima bean-sized. Nine months in the mother's pouch.


Wallabies are kangaroo-like. They are only distinguished from kangaroos by size. Kangaroo refers to the four largest kangaroo species, whereas wallaby refers to the nine smaller species.


Each season, koalas have one joey. Due to a diet of hard-to-digest leaves, koalas produce little milk energy. The joey must breastfeed for a year.


Wombats get a straight back pouch so dirt doesn't get in while burrowing. Females have a single baby after 30 days, and it stays in the pouch for 6-7 months.


Bandicoots have a placenta, although it's small and lacking placental features. Their rear-facing pouch keeps dirt out when digging, like wombats.
