Summary: 
Fat-tailed mouse opossums (Thylamys spp.) such as the one pictured are capable of reabsorbing fat stored in their tail for use as an energy source in lean times. This is useful for coping with life in unpredictable, dry climates. The same trick is used by some of the Australian dunnarts (Sminthopsis spp.), which are also found in dry areas.
