     The greater fig-multi (Ficitherium magnus) is the largest of the multituberculates, with lengths often over a meter.  These sinuous, furry near-mammals live only in the p-Ficus forests of Spec's southern North America, and their diet consists exclusively of the fruit these trees produce.

    Like the bats of South America, fig-multis are the principal vectors of fig generation.  The multis eat the fruits, and may then travel for kilometers before dropping the seeds in their feces.  Thus, the trees do not only gain the spread of their species, but fertilizer for their seedlings, as well.
