Pet Marsupials

Kangaroos and koala bears are marsupials, but did you know some fairly common exotic pets are also marsupials?

Sugar gliders, opossums, short tailed?opossums, wallabies and wallaroos are all marsupials.? Unlike placental mammals, they all carry their young in their pouch (marsupium) where they grow after being born.

What unique creatures we have as pets!
