Marsupial genomic library

I am currently studying an enhancer element that is very well conserved
among all mammals that I have tested including marsupials.  I have
amplified and sequenced the element from a variety of mammals including
koala and opossum.  The enhancer is 20 kb upstream of the gene in humans
and mice and I want to establish that it is also linked in these marsupial
species.  I am looking for a marsupial genomic library (cosmid if
possible) and preferably koala although opossum would be OK also.  Does
anyone know if one exists and if so, where I might obtain it?  Thanks!
