Marsupials are mammals – and the mammals, at least one would think so, are found everywhere, including in Europe and Asia. With the marsupials, however, the situation is different. They are a very special subgroup of the already extinct marsupials.
They only occur in Australia and America, but not in Europe. So there is a good chance of seeing a marsupial on a trip to the USA.
What marsupials are there in America?
Within North America there is only the oppossum, which is considered a marsupial and possibly can be seen. There is a good chance it has also been sighted in Canada, as it has spread.
Many other species live in South America. And most of the marsupials are – as already suspected – in Australia.
What are marsupials anyway?
The most famous marsupial is certainly the kangaroo . Because it obviously carries its offspring with it and transports its young in its pouch. There are also koalas and wombats, which most people are probably familiar with. The bandicoots and the robbers are certainly less known. Altogether there are even 320 species of marsupials and thus an enormous number of animals that carry their offspring around in their pouches.
But if you want to see them, you have to travel quite a while and you won't be able to avoid the plane.
