Marsupialia: Diprotodontia

Koalas, Possums, Kangaroo, Wallabies

Commonly known as marsupials, members are divided into seven orders; Didelphimorphia, Paucituberculata, Microbiotheria, Dasyuromorphia, Peramelemorphia, Notoryctemorphia, and Diprotodontia. the members of the order Marsupialia are pouch-bearing mammals who give birth to underdeveloped offspring. These offspring complete their development within the mother's pouch, sucking milk there. There is great diversity within this order. Forms range from the carnivorous Tasmanian wolf and Australian bandicoot to the herbivorous brushtail possum and red kangaroo. marsupials vary in size from the 1/3 ounce marsupial mole to the 155 pound gray kangaroo.

The skull of a marsupial can normally be recognized by the extra number of teeth. Tooth counts range from 40 to 50 exceeding that a most placental mammals.

The diprotodonts, with ten families including 117 species, make up the largest order of marsupials. They can be distinguished from other metatheres because digits two and three of the hind feet are fully fused except for the claws and a single pair of incisors dominates the lower jaw, although sometimes an additional pair is present.
