Among the diprotodont types the Phascolomyidae, or Wombats, have a dentition recalling that of the Rodents.
Figs. 76 and 77 illustrate the Polyprotodont and diprotodont dentitions.
But it is now known that diprotodont Marsupials formerly existed in the same part of the world.
It lives apparently upon bird's eggs and small birds, though it belongs to the diprotodont division of the Marsupials.
The affinities with other diprotodont Marsupials are shown by the commencing syndactyly of the second and third toes.
