ACCUEIL –> Classe MAMMALIA –> Ordre DIDELPHIMORPHIA

Les Didelphidés sont de petits marsupiaux qui atteignent tout au plus la taille d’un chat. Ils ont un corps trapu et un museau plus ou moins pointu. Certaines espèces n’ont pas de poche marsupiale. Ils ont 5 doigts à chaque membre, un pouce opposable, dépourvu d’ongle, aux membres postérieurs, et une queue souvent préhensile et en partie dénudée.
