Marsupial Fetus Terminology
Location: Outside U.S.
Date: Winter 2012-2913
Is a Marcupial Neonate still a Fetus after birth although it may be a category mistake to call it a Fetus?
Thanks for the question. It is a matter of terminology. I would
recommend looking up the definition of "fetus" on the internet and
using your judgement. I, personally, would consider a fetus as a
child that is still in a womb.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any more questions.
