Description

Feeding at 1.45 p.m. on a bitterly cold afternoon, with a good plastering of rime ice over much of the scrub. Judging from this possum's behaviour, it had never seen a human, because it ignored me even though I was moving in full view about 20 metres away.

Description

I realize this is right up there with some bigfoot photos, but we actually got brief but fantastic looks at this small rainforest-dwelling macropod before it leaped off the trail and disappeared into the thick foliage. I was able to get this one shot of its tail, thigh, and hind foot as it bounded off.

Description from Wikipedia

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".
