Marsupials are special mammals whose young are carried and suckled inside their mother's pouch. Those of us who are from North America have probably come across an opossum meandering down the street late at night. If you are really lucky, one might have even hissed at you, asking you to give it some space. But despite living half a world away, we are most familiar with kangaroos and koalas - two of the most adorable and irresistible marsupials. Some other lesser known marsupials include wallabies, wombats and Tasmanian devils.
