A marsupial is a type of lifeform with an external pouch used for incubating its young. Marsupials evolved on many different planets in the Milky Way Galaxy.


The Akritirian chaka emu was a hybrid marsupial from Akritiri in the Delta Quadrant. (ST reference: Star Trek Cookbook)


The Arcadians had a pouch in which their newborns spent the first three to six months of their lives. (TOS reference: Star Trek IV Sourcebook Update)
