Brushtail possum expressing his/her displeasure with me. Wellington, New Zealand. The possum is a species introduced to New Zealand which causes many environment problems.
This was one of the first road kill wallabies I photographed in Tasmania. I was upset to notice their corpses or piles of bones every mile or so along the roads.
The Diprotodontia (/daɪˌproʊtɵˈdɒnʃ(i)ə/; Greek: διπρωτός diprotos, meaning "two front" and οδοντος odontos meaning "teeth") are a large order of about 120 marsupial mammals including the kangaroos, wallabies, possums, koala, wombats, and many others. Extinct diprotodonts include the rhinoceros-sized Diprotodon, and Thylacoleo, the so-called "marsupial lion".
