Summary: 
An early print of the Brown Four-eyed Opossum (Metachirus nudicaudatus) from Richard Lydekker’s 1896 work, A Hand-book to the Marsupialia and Monotremata (Plate XXXIII). The genus was not recognised until 1854. This species had been discovered in 1803 and classified as a species of Didelphis, but it was later recognised that Brown Four-eyed Opossums are in fact pouch-less, unlike the famous pouched Didelphis that was proudly presented by explorer Vicente Pinzón to Queen Isabella of Spain in 1500. All marsupials have a paired uterus and vagina (although all have a single external opening) and the name Didelphis literally means ‘two wombs’. Source: Wikimedia Commons.
