(1) Many of the extinct marsupial megafauna were large, herbivorous browsers, some weighing several tons.(2) ├ö├ç├┐This new fossil provides precious new information, and sheds light on the evolution of all marsupial mammals,├ö├ç├û he said.(3) Unlike the large cats that have two enlarged canines, marsupial lions had enlarged incisors that were used to stab prey.(4) Named Akidolestes, the extinct animal had jaws, teeth, and forelimbs that identify it as a close relative of modern placental and marsupial mammals.(5) Small mammals such as bush rats and marsupial carnivores survived the fires by hiding under boulders and in damp rock crevasses.(6) The Tasmanian Devil is the world's largest marsupial predator but its very survival is at stake as an horrific cancer threatens up to 90% of its population.(7) The production of a marsupial genetic linkage map is perhaps one of the most important objectives in marsupial research.(8) This was catastrophic for some of the local animals, especially the big marsupial carnivores.(9) Tooth replacement in marsupial mammals differs from the condition generally believed to characterize eutherian mammals.(10) The marsupial wolf, now probably extinct, was once widespread in Australia and New Guinea.(11) The homology of the teeth in the marsupial dentition has been controversial and there are several alternate nomenclatures.(12) Dental development also occurs throughout the period of attachment in other marsupial species.(13) Placental and marsupial mammals are more closely related to one another than to the third living group of mammals, the monotremes.(14) Once the female hip-pocket frog, an Australian species also known as the marsupial frog, lays up to 20 white eggs, her work is done.(15) Studies on marsupial color vision have been limited to very few species.(16) The marsupial family Tarsipedidae contains a single species, the honey possum or noolbender.
