Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
Inhabits treeless, grassland (pampas) areas. The diet probably consists of mice, small birds, and, where present, insects and fruit. Anatomical features of this opossum, such as the skull, suggest that it is more carnivorous than its relatives. One specimen was caught in a trap with a bird in its mouth.
