Marsupials are a category within the mammal kingdom. Usually the females have a pouch. Well-known marsupials are: kangaroos, the koala and possums.
Marsupials have decreased in numbers in the last centuries/decades. The colonization of Australia by Europeans caused many marsupials to be extinct. Hunting, habitat destruction in favor of farmland en fire are great threats.
