Marsupials are animals that carry their young ones in a pouch. They have a very small gestation period and the mother continues to feed the baby even when it is fully grown. The common marsupials are the kangaroo, opossum, koala and the wallaby. The platypus is an amazing marsupial animal as it lays eggs and yet belongs to the mammal group. Terrapin which is seemingly similar to a turtle has thinner shells and webbed feet. The unique feature of a terrapin lies in the diamond shaped back.
The average life span of a fox in the wild is from two to three years. Being cared for in captivity, this can go from ten to twelve. If the owner decides to breed, adequate shelter and ground to burrow the new born pups must be provided since this is where it will happen. You shouldnt disturb the fox during this time and just wait till the pups come out because the threat from outsiders has prompted some mothers to kill their young. Studies have shown pups taken away from the mother after whelping are friendlier so this should be monitored.
