How Many Marsupials Are left Today?
Marsupials are a large and breeding species that can more often than not be seen in the outback at night and evening when it is cooler and as for Tanzanian devils they are nocturnal.

Why Are they Nocturnal?
In outbacks and wild forests it can get almost as hot as a desert so the animals mostly come out at night when it is surprisingly cool. Lots of the predators will be unable to see them with their dark coats and light feet though the bigger marsupials like Kangaroos are awake in day time.
Random Facts
The marsupials belong to a family that is split into two groups the American Marsupials and the Australian Marsupials.
There are around 99 species of American Marsupials and 235 species of Australian Marsupials.
Marsupials give birth to their young very early in their development
Only one species of Marsupials lives in North America
The largest marsupial is the red kangaroo
Other Maruspials
The koala, sloth and Kangaroos are only the most well known marsupials there are others such as Possums, Wallabies, Dasyure, Qoulls, Tasmanian Devil and Phascogales. Which come in many many different breeds.

What Are Marsupials?
Marsupials are mammals with a pouch in which they have their babies carried and born in so marsupials don’t have organs (placentas) that feed the baby in their pouch. Marsupials mostly live in the wild and are somewhat related to rodents and apes. They usually rest a lot and have low energy because they mostly eat leaves and seeds or if they are low on food small insects. Instead pf placentas the babies grow in the pouch and always suckle.
There are many different types of Marsupials but I am only focusing on the Koala, Kangaroo and the Sloth.
marsupial |mɑːˈsuːpɪəl|Zoology
noun
a mammal of an order whose members are born incompletely developed and are typically carried and suckled in a pouch on the mother’s belly. Marsupials are found chiefly in Australia and New Guinea, and also in America.marsupial |mɑːˈsuːpɪəl|Zoology
noun

Tasmanian Devil
Marsupials are not endangered though I think we still
should protect them as we would for any other animal.
When they are sleeping they curl up in a ball with their claws gripping tightly onto the tree so that they can avoid being hunted. When at night and they are curled up hanging from a tree most predators think that they are just fruit so that is another reason why.
They only eat the poisonous eucalyptus leaves, they find a eucalyptus tree and live there for the rest of their lives.

By Anna
Here is a short video of a Kangaroo at night:
They have long nimble claws around 3-4 inches and very curved, I you annoy them they will swipe at you.
Most sloths are around 16-20 inches in height and live to around 25-30 years.
They hang from high branches so that predators can’t eat them and they curve their long claws around they branch.
Kangaroos
Kangaroos are herbivores though when they feel threatened they will kick and scratch
They can jump up to 30 feet thanks to their strong hind legs
There are fossils of 30 different Kangaroo species in Australia.
Baby Joeys are only around 2.5 cm about the size of a grape and are cradled in the pouch of their mother and suckle for around 8 months and stay inside the pouch till they are 12 months
Thank You for watching!
