Paleontologists have found that a species belonging to an extinct genus of marsupial that roamed Australia some 25 million ago had a gigantic size and could reach a weight of more than 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds).

The study, which was carried out by scientists at Australia's Monash University, was published in the open-access scientific journal PLOS ONE on Friday. EFE-EPA
