Marsupials The Pouched Mammals
One of the most convenient ways to carry a baby is perhaps in a baby carrier. Not only does it leave your hands free, but it also keeps the baby warm, comfortable, and close. Well, unbelievably there are several animals, known as marsupials, that have a remarkably similar baby carrier – a natural pouch – for carrying their young. Immerse is delighted to introduce you to some of these unique animals in the “Mammals and Marsupials” bundle.
There are over 250 diverse types of marsupials, and they vary in size between that of a squirrel and a dog, although the largest, the Red Kangaroo, can grow to about 3m (10ft) tall. The first three marsupials we are featuring in the Immerse app are the Koala, Red Kangaroo, and the Tasmanian Devil. High quality 3D models bring these animals to life for you and the facts tell you all you want to know and more about them. Here is a sneak peek at these amazing creatures.

Meet the cute and cuddly koala. This adorable marsupial lives in trees and survives solely on a diet of tough and toxic eucalyptus leaves. Listen to the sound it makes when communicating with other koalas – it sounds like a snore!

The fierce looking Tasmanian devil is the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial. It has the strongest bite of any living mammal predator, and its jaws are strong enough to gnaw through metal. To top it off, it has one of the most chilling calls you will ever hear!
The red kangaroo is native to Australia and is the largest of all the kangaroo species and the world’s largest marsupial. Check out its walk and powerful hop!
Tip: Try viewing the models in their actual size to get an idea of what it feels like to be face-to-face with them. Their sizes are given in the facts. Enjoy!
