80,542. A marsupial is a plantigrade vertebrate whose speciality is its pocket. In some countries it is extinct, in the others it is rare. The first American marsupials were Stephen Girard, Mr Astor, and the opossum; the principal marsupials of the Southern Hemisphere are Mr Rhodes, and the kangaroo. I, myself, am the latest marsupial. Also, I might boast that I have the largest pocket of them all. But there is nothing in that. Mark Twain, Following the Equator
