... how gray short-tailed opossums( Monodelphis domestica ), which are generalized marsupials living on or near the ground, adjust to travel on rough and smooth 2 cm-diameter arboreal trackways. Limb contact position was determined via high-speed videography, and substrate reaction force was measured...

...Andrew R. Lammers; Audrone R. Biknevicius SUMMARY Effects of substrate diameter on locomotor biodynamics were studied in the gray short-tailed opossum ( Monodelphis domestica ). Two horizontal substrates were used: a flat `terrestrial' trackway with a force platform integrated into the surface...

... maximum voluntary bite force data along Region I and II of the jaws of gray short-tailed opossums Monodelphis domestica . Then, growth series of M. domestica are used to assess how bite force potential changes with growth by evaluating craniodental changes using longitudinal sets of dorsoventral...
