Animals with baby pouches

Marsupials are animals who carry their young in a pouch from birth until they are ready to be on their own. The babies are born very early, and then move to their mother’s pouch, called a marsupium. They will stay there and nurse on their mother’s milk. The duration of the stay depends on the species.

Most people know about the kangaroo, but there are actually many more species who raise their babies this way – in fact, over 250. Some marsupials include:

  • Koalas
  • Tasmanian devil
  • Numbat
  • Wombat
  • Marsupial mouse
  • Various opossums
  • Gliders
  • Wallaby
  • Wallaroo
  • Cuscus
  • Bilbies
