Giant pandas are not considered marsupials; they are part of the bear family (Ursidae). One of the defining characteristics of marsupials is the fact that the young are born very prematurely, considering the gestation period of other mammals. They are then carried around in a pouch on the mother’s body until sufficiently developed. Pandas, by contrast, are placental mammals and have a much longer gestation period than marsupials.
