      Back then, monotremes, marsupials and eutherians coexisted in the primeval forests. But the last of these three, little by little, gained ground, as their new evolutionary prototypes improved. Marsupials by photographer Nic Bishop is a captivating book that looks into the natural world of Marsupials. This book introduces many types of marsupials such as bettongs, bilbies, quolls, quokkas, potoroos, pademelons, along with the well known kangaroos, koalas and many others that live on the continent of Australia/5.

    Monotremes (from Greek μονός, monos ('single') and τρῆμα, trema ('hole'), referring to the cloaca) are one of the three main groups of living mammals, along with placentals and marsupials ().The monotremes are typified by structural differences in their brains, jaws, digestive tract, reproductive tract, and other body parts compared to the more common Class: Mammalia. Australia is the kingdom of marsupials, home to furry kangaroos, koalas and wombats. The continent has so many marsupials, it raises the question: Did these pouch-bearing mammals arise Down Under?

    Australia has more than species of marsupials, including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, and wombats. Our 55 different native species of kangaroos and wallabies vary greatly in size and weight, ranging from half a kilogram (1 pound) to 90 ( pounds) kilograms. Marsupials represent one of three subclasses of mammals that include Prototherians (monotremes), Metatherians (marsupials), and Eutherians (placentals). Monotremes diverged early in evolution, and evidence from gene sequencing studies indicates that marsupials arose concurrently with placental mammals, approximately Ma (Figure 1).The first marsupials .

There is an urgent need for concerted action to conserve the marsupials and monotremes of the Australasian region. Australia has the worst extinction rate for the Reviews: 1.Over half of Australia’s land mammals are marsupials, which give birth to their young and then carry them in a pouch until the infant is old enough to survive on its own.

Of even more biological interest, are Australia’s two monotremes (Echidna and Platypus) as they are the only mammals that lay eggs and suckle their young.
