Note the ‘built for purpose’ extended digging claws and the very interesting arrangement of teeth. The lower extend into two strong lifting and cutting apparatus, the upper are used for grasping. Think biomimicry: a combination fork-lift and grappling tool.

A strong tail, used for counterbalance and anchoring.
Extracting plants for the larder.
