#RecapStats: Saber-toothed Anchovy is about 1m long (about 3 stoats), an ancient (45-50 MYA) marine predator & named after a vampire-like demon due to it's large single tooth (artwork by @JoschuaKnuppe) #StoatsAsMeasurement #2021MMM tinyurl.com/5bx5ths2
@JoschuaKnuppe Described just last year by #ActualLivingScientist @acapomorphic & @Friedman_Lab, the existence of Saber-toothed Anchovy suggests this ancient family of fish was diverse, from large predators to small planktivores (Capobianco et al 2020) #2021MMM tinyurl.com/254ya7jr

NEXT UP: #3 Mountain Tapir (Tapirus pinchaque) vs #6 Jaguarundi (Herpailurus yagouaroundi)! Collaborative battle by me and @annewhilborn with genetics by @sexchrlab #2021MMM Image showing a stout bodied dark grey tapir on the left pic
@AnneWHilborn @sexchrlab Mountain Tapir can be active any time of day, unlike other tapir species which are mostly nocturnal. Activity levels depend on elevation, with more foraging occurring throughout the day in secondary forests below 3000m. (tinyurl.com/4dfrvh9f) #2021MMM
@AnneWHilborn @sexchrlab Mountain Tapir spend lots of time at mineral licks & eating clay for salt, silica, & copper. It is thought these minerals are needed to neutralize plant defense compounds! (tinyurl.com/3tebfhvt) #2021MMM Poor photoshop of Tapir's face with tounge sticking out onto

NEXT UP: No. 2 seed Midgardia Seastar (Midgardia xandaros) vs No. 15 seed Hydra (Hydra vulgaris). This battle is a team effort from myself & @je_light #2021MMM
@je_light Midgardia Seastar is a relatively new species, described only 50 years ago! M. Seastar is an echinoderm (star fish, sea urchins & sea cucumbers) with lots of arms - in fact, it has the longest arms of any other known starfish (Downey 1972)! tinyurl.com/m9y6m3fa #2021MMM Black-and-white photograph of a star fish with a small, circ
@je_light Midgardia Seastars can have 12 long arms, each up to 600 mm in length (that's 1.76 stoats!) & can reach over 130 cm long from arm tip to arm tip (3.8 stoats!) #StoatsAsMeasurement #2021MMM

Giant Golden Moles are ~20 cm long & up to 539 grams (4x the size of other golden moles!). They vary in color, outer fur can be slate, dark brown, reddish or yellow-ish buff (Poduschka 1980) #2021MMM Drawing of golden mole but fur has greenish tinge
Giant golden moles share some of the same bones as other animals but THEY HAVE 3 FOREARM BONES & WE HAVE 2!

FIRST UP!! #1 seed RED KANGAROO (Osphranter rufus) vs wild card winner SOUTHERN RED-BACKED VOLE (Myodes gapperi) #RedInFur #2021MMM
Red Kangaroos are the largest living marsupial, weighing in at up to 90kg & 1.8m tall when standing. Male red kangaroos are much larger than females, up to twice the size. Males are also reddish in color, while the females are bluish-grey (Freedman et al. 2020) #2021MMM
The hop of O. rufus averages 1m when the animal is moving slowly, but is lengthened with speed, up to 3–4 m. At short bursts, it can reach speeds of 40km/hr!! (Freedman et al 2020) #2021MMM

LAST UP: No. 8 seed Finlayson's Squirrel (Callosciurus finlaysonii) vs No. 9 seed Kowari (Dasyuroides byrnei) #2020MMM
Finlayson's Squirrel is our 3rd #TeamRodent of the night. These "beautiful squirrels" (but aren't they all??) are quite lovely with highly variable coat colors ranging from all white to all black to all red (Boonkhaw et al. 2017 bit.ly/338Fnb0) #2020MMM
In fact, Callosciurus is Greek for beautiful ('callo'), shadow ('skia'), & tail ('oura') (Borror 1960 bit.ly/2THQeWn). Finlayson's Squirrel are #smol squirrels (1.3 stoats #StoatsAsMeasurements), found in the trees (arboreal) in southeast Asia rainforests #2020MMM

LAST BATTLE: 8th-seeded Red Panda (Ailurus fulgens) versus 9th-seeded Spotted Linsang (Prionodon pardicolor) #2020MMM
Our last #TeamDogsish competitor is the Red Panda, a small-to-medium sized carnivore (5kg/11lbs/23stoats) recognizable for its white face, red-ish back & long tail with red-and-buff colored rings #StoatsAsMeasurement #FLOOF #2020MMM
Red Pandas have round heads, large pointed ears, & their bodies are covered with woolly hair (even the soles of their feet!) as an adaptation to their cold, native climates at high elevations #MoreFLOOF #2020MMM animaldiversity.org/accounts/Ailur…

TONIGHT THE WILDCARD: Grandidier's "Mongoose" (Galidictis grandidieri) versus the Pygmy Spotted Skunk (Spilogale pygmaea)! #2020MMM
Galidictis grandidieri was recently better-recognized as a vontsira than a mongoose, but since we <3 our players, we wanted to make it easier to find research on them, hence the air quotes. #2020MMM [gif is man doing air quotes]
Often called the GIANT-striped mongoose, this black & light brown-to-cream striped Feliform typically weighs between 500-590g (an average of 2.5 stoats) #StoatsAsMeasurement #TeamCatsish #2020MMM

UP NEXT from the JUMP JUMP division: 1-seed TIGER versus 4-seed BHARAL #2019MMM
Our Bengal Tiger weighs in at 258kg/1173 stoats & the Himalayan Blue Sheep or Bharal weights 75kg/341 stoats #StoatsAsMeasurement #2019MMM
As noted by #TeamStoat, the male Bharal scared away its previous competitors (the stoat & rocky wallaby) in its native montane habitats of Nepal & India #2019MMM

NEXT UP: #2 Coyote & Badger vs. #7 Wattled Jacana & Capybara #2019MMM (co-narrated w/ @TanisBP)
Badger's can bite with 316 Newtons of pressure! Their lower jaws fully lock into their skulls, preventing dislocation & side-to side movement. #2019MMM
Coyotes have elaborate vocalizations & are commonly heard by people in rural areas. Although people tend to overestimate how many they hear, leading to unnecessary fear in humans (figure from: bit.ly/2YlCqBl) #2019MMM

NEXT UP: #1 Plains Zebra (Equus quagga) & Yellow-Billed Oxpecker (Buphagus africanus) vs #8 seed Aardvark (Orycteropus afer) & Aardvark Cucumber (Cucumis humifructus) #2019MMM
In Round 1, Oxpecker (& Zebra) picked off the Batfly (& Gammaproteobacteria). Aardvark & Cucurbit advanced against #Tripletrouble monkeys in an epic #BeastieBoys Battle #2019MMM
Why do Zebras have stripes? Scientists had thought these stripes were anti-predator devices, making it difficult for predators to cue in on 1 individual among the herd (called disruptive coloration) #2019MMM

NEXT UP: 6th-seeded Lion-Tailed Macaque (Macaca silenus) vs. 11th-seeded Cat Snake (Telescopus fallax) #2019MMM
Though named for its lion-like, black-tufted tail, both male & female Lion-Tailed Macaques also boast a leonine silvery mane. Accordingly, this species is called "Bartaffe," which translates to "beard ape" (*not an ape), in German. #ServingLooks #TheRachel #2019MMM
One of the smaller macaque species, a large Lion-Tailed Macaque tips the scales at 10kg (about 45 stoats). Males are significantly bigger than females (Harvey et al 1991), with large canines they use to compete for mates. #2019MMM #StoatsAsMeasurement

Hand-claps for @MarcKissel who wrote this amazing BATTLE OF THE DONS!!! #2018MMM (I'm just the messenger tonight)
Dimetrodon has already defeated Aegyptopithecus zeuxis & devoured Pseudaelurus quadridentatus, while Amebelodon has out-competed Deinogalerix koenigswald & scared off Homo floresiensis #2018MMM
