Marsupials truly have the oddest get-up.
When they are utterly helpless, the offspring
must, by grasping the hairs on its mother's belly,
inch its precarious way from the uterus to the pouch.
The fact that they endanger the lives of their young
in such a way is why marsupials are considered
to be such a primitive branch of mammal.
