Yesterday we read about Possums --

and did you notice that the Possum is a Marsupial animal?

Do you remember what is unusual about Marsupials?

Yes, when their young are born they crawl into a pouch on the mother's belly and live there for some time until they are large enough to emerge.

You are likely most familiar with Marsupials such as the Kangaroo and it was  probably 'new' to you to know that the Possum is also a Marsupial

as is the Wombat, Panda, and Koala.

Today's link takes us to a very short article with more details and some cute pictures of Marsupials.
