Appendix S1. Cumulative influence of the number of location fixes on the home-range estimates of the squirrel glider using the fixed kernel (FK95%) method. Home-range data used in the analysis are identified in Table 2 and are indicated by ‘*’

Appendix S2. Cumulative influence of the number of location fixes on the home-range estimates of the squirrel glider using the minimum convex polygon (MCP100%) method. Home-range data used in the analysis are identified in Table 2 and are indicated by‘*’.

Appendix S1. Rates of allelic dropout (ADO) and false alleles (FA) for amplification of fecal DNA collected from spotted hyenas. To estimate error rates, a reference genotype was determined using either a multiple-tubes approach or DNA extracted from a blood sample from the same individual. Sample sizes for the multiple-tubes approach are presented as the number of individuals. Matched blood samples were available for 4 individuals. N/A indicates that the ADO could not be calculated because all individuals sampled were homozygous for this locus.

Figure S1. Muscle origin and insertion areas and lines of action of muscle forces for skulls of (a) Dasyurus maculatus, (b) Sarcophilus harrisii, and (c) Thylacinus cynocephalus constructed using finite element software (Strand 7, Vers 2.4).

Table S1. Values used to assign eight material properties to brick elements in heterogeneous models.

Table S2. Force used for each jaw muscle division in unscaled models of Dasyurus maculatus, Sarcophilus harrisii and Thylacinus cynocephalus. These were calculated using muscle mass proportions from dissected D. Virginiana (Turnbull 1970).

Table S3. Volume (mm3) and percentage volume (%) of each material property in the skull of each model.

Figure S1. Schedule of tooth eruption and replacement (including post-canine teeth) in coyotes. The presence of each deciduous (D) or Adult (A) tooth is indicated for the cranium (a) and mandible (b). All coyote skull specimens examined at each age displayed the specified tooth configuration.

Figure S2. Comparison of mean mechanical advantage of the temporalis between coyotes with primarily deciduous dentition and those with primarily adult dentition.

Figure S3. Plots of the regression of the out-lever arm length (distance between the mandibular condyle and the bite point) on the in-lever arm length (distance between the mandibular condyle and the dorsal tip of the coronoid process) (a) and the residuals (b).

Table S4. Relative fit of the eight growth models fitted to the feeding performance, maximum zygomatic arch breadth and relative bite strength. The AIC weight evaluates relative goodness-of-fit by balancing the distance between model and data by degrees of freedom. AC refers to serial autocorrelation among residuals of the model (statistically significant are indicated by an asterisk). The AIC is not applied to models with significant AC. The model judged best is in bold type.
