Summary: 
The monito del montes (Dromiciops spp.) are at home among bamboo clumps where they hunt for mainly invertebrate prey in the spring, which provides crucial protein needed to fuel mating. In the summer, however, they switch their diet to include fruit, which provides extra sugar to be stored as fat to supplement bouts of winter torpor. Some populations are well studied; note the metal ear tag on the individual pictured that scientists are using to monitor its growth across the year. Source: Marcela Franco.
