Summary: 
Many carnivorous marsupials eat invertebrates that have hard, crunchy exosekeletons. The teeth of the predator need to have plenty of sharp ridges and cusps to cut up and crunch such prey efficiently. These weapons are on display in this fat-tailed opossum (Thylamys) – ecologists handling such animals beware! Source: Thiago Semedo.
