WORLD'S SMALLEST MARSUPIAL
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the world's smallest marsupial?


Did you know that there are over 300 species of marsupials and over 200 of them call Australia home?

The largest marsupial is the Red kangaroo.

On the other end of the scale we have the world's smallest marsupial and that title goes to the Long-tailed Planigale (Planigale ingrami), which also calls Australia home,  the Top End of the Northern Territory and the Kimberley region of Western Australia, to be more exact.

The Long-tailed Planigale measures from 55 to 65 millimeters without the tail, which is the same length as it's body.

An average male weighs 4.2 grams and the average female is about 1/10 gram heavier, although the giants of the species can weigh an amazing 6 grams.
