    Last week, I did a post on how animals dispersed around the world after the Flood. However, there is one group of animals that have been an interesting puzzle for creationists to explain: marsupials. While some species of marsupials are known from South America and southeast Asia, most are known from Australia, which is also where they are the most diverse. If pairs of every kind of marsupial got off Noah’s Ark in the Middle East, why are most of them in Australia and nowhere else on Earth? And why do we find no fossils of them in between the Middle East and Australia? The answer to the first question likely lies with marsupials relationship with placental mammals (mammals that don't raise their young in a pouch). History has shown us that when the two animal groups share habitat, placentals regularly out compete marsupial species. For a while after Noah's Flood, South America was an island continent and home to a wide range of marsupials, including the saber-toothed cat-like Thylacosmilus. But once the Isthmus of Panama formed, placental mammals, like true saber-toothed cats, from North America moved into the southern continent en masse, and many marsupials died out. The thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, roamed the entire island of Tasmania for thousands of years. This changed with the arrival of mankind and an animal they brought with them: the dingo. Dingos and thylacines competed for the exact same role of apex predator. There wasn't  enough space for both of them, so guess which animal won out: the placental dingos! It is likely that after the Flood, marsupials were largely outcompeted by placental mammals and even driven to extinction by them in most cases. Australia, and for a while South America, were an exception because of their isolation from the mainland. Today, Australia remains the last stronghold for more than a hundred species of marsupials.
