    Uromys caudimaculatus Yellow-footed Antechinus
    Antechinus flavipes Carnivorous Marsupials Order Dasyuromorpha In many ways, these are Australia's forgotten marsupials. There are in fact over 50 species of these generally predatory marsupials (Strahan 1998), making it the biggest family of marsupials (Egerton 199), yet they are little known by the general public. This is probably the result of the fact that, unlike kangaroos and possums, the dasyurids are very rarely seen, for on the whole they are small, fast and generally nocturnal in habit. Being predators, they are also at the top of the food chain, and naturally less abundant. Most dasyurids prey on insects and other invertebrates. However, they are well known amongst biologists for their tenacious nature and it is not uncommon for them to tackle prey that are larger than themselves, such as small birds and other mammals. The bigger dasyurids will catch larger birds and feed on carcasses. In turn, they are prey for many Australian snakes, although it has been suggested that the aggressive nature of dasyurids has resulted in the high incidence of strongly venomous snakes in Australia relative to the rest of the world (Martin 1993). Like many predators, they have evolved a fairly uniform morphology. Dasyurids tend to have four equal length limbs. The tail is not prehensile (Strahan and Cayley 1995) and may be covered in hair, be fluffy, or have a tuft at the end; in fact the group's name 'Dasyurid' means 'hairy tail' in Greek (Stahan and Cayley 1995). The head usually has large round ears and a elongated snout. Being predators, the long snout is filled with small, sharp teeth.

    PALEONTOLOGY. general Paleontology. V.1 Mesozoic differentiation, multituberculates,monotremes, early therians, and marsupials. V. 2 Placentals.
    This bibliography is designed to guide beginning students in mammalogy to literature in specific areas. The works included are primarily monographic and of wide coverage. It is also a work in progress; I add new works and update editions when any such come to my attention. Note: This list has been compiled by scouring through curatorial offices and the library in the Department of Mammalogy at the American Museum of Natural History. It has been updated by perusing the new main library books borrowed by curators. I note the Museum's call number or the Library of Congress number on the back of the title page; these are not always the same, and I prefer the Museum Library's number. Several titles are taken from publisher's fliers and Choice cards; the pagination is not always correct for books that are yet to be issued, and they usually end in suspiciously round numbers. To recommend inclusion of additional works or to correct listings, please notify John H. Wahlert

    GENERAL Pleistocene Animals of the Midwestern U.S . Illinois State Museum. An excellent site on the Pleistocene mammals of the midwestern United States with a general introduction to the age and its animals and separate sections on mastodons, mammoths, dire wolfs, ground sloths, saber-toothed cats and some othe not so famous extinct animals of North America. Fossils of the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits . George C. Page Museum. The Page Museum is the museum located at the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles. This wonderful site has extensive information about this famous Pleistocene locality along with information about the animals that became trapped in the pits, how the fossilization occurred, the museum, and much more. However the most fascinating part is on the various mammals that became caught in the asphalt including mammoths, mastodons, saber-toothed cats, dire wolves, and more. Highly recommended. The La Brea Tar Pits . University of California at Berkeley Museum of Paleontology. An introduction to the La Brea Tar Pits, the fossil animals and plants that have been found there, and the history of the regions.
