Marsupials List

While kangaroos, koalas, and opposums are definitely among the popular lot, the list of marsupials is not restricted to them. It also comprises gliders, dunnarts, and bandicoots, which may not be popular, but are quite amazing in themselves.

Did You Know?
The Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana) is the only marsupial found in the United States.
Kangaroos and koalas are typically characterized by the presence of a pouch as a part of their anatomy in which they carry their young ones. This pouch, which is known as marsupium in Latin, forms the basis of classification when it comes to marsupials. Simply put, marsupials―Metatheria infraclass of mammals―are animals in whom the females carry their young ones in a pouch on their body throughout infancy.

As of today, as many as 334 extant species of marsupials have been identified, around 70 percent of which are found in Australia and New Guinea―an island in the Pacific which is governed by Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. The rest of the species are spread over South America, Central America, and North America.
Facts About Marsupials
Before we move ahead, you need to understand that the pouch is just one of the characteristic traits of marsupials; not the sole criterion of classification. Not all marsupials sport a permanent pouch. In fact, some species just have folds of skin wherein they house the newborns. Other characteristics of the members of this infraclass of mammals include a short gestation period and a long lactation period.

Basically, the short period which the young ones spend in the womb, is supplemented by the lengthy lactation period wherein the young ones stay in the pouch and feed on the mother's milk. Though the newborns are weak, owing to the short gestation period, they do have strong forelimbs which help them crawl out of the pouch for feeding.

More than 300 marsupial mammals are found in different parts of the world. While the long-tailed planigale (Planigale ingrami) is the smallest marsupial on Earth, measuring around 55 to 65 mm and weighing about 4.2 gm, the red kangaroo (Macropus rufus) is the largest, measuring 4 ft 7 in. in length and weighing 190 lb. This aptly highlights the great deal of diversity when it comes to marsupials.

As you must have noticed, several species in this list are enlisted as 'Endangered' or 'Critically Endangered' by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). If we don't come up with concrete measures to save them, they will soon feature in the list of extinct marsupials, which already has names like the Tasmanian tiger A.K.A. Thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus), crescent nail-tail wallaby (Onychogalea lunata), desert rat-kangaroo (Caloprymnus campestris), desert bandicoot (Perameles eremiana), Toolache wallaby (Macropus greyi), red-bellied gracile opossum (Cryptonanus ignitus), pig-footed bandicoot (Chaeropus ecaudatus), and lesser bilby (Macrotis leucura) to its credit.
