nightime shot of possum
These common brush-tailed possums live near our home in the bushland of Mundy regional park. Most have an autumn breeding season after which one single young is born. The newborn spends four to five months in the mother's pouch before it rides on her back until weaning is completed.
Remains beside possum trap.
Had not long started the return down the track when I came across this possum in the canopy of a small toro. About 4.50 p.m. — a good hour or more before dark.
Possum found inside resident's wardrobe looking over the top of the coat hangers by Bipest Services.
After removal home owner commented "look it is peed on the bed"
Note the fungi growing on it.
The common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula, from the Greek for "furry tailed" and the Latin for "little fox", previously in the genus Phalangista) is a nocturnal, semi-arboreal marsupial of the family Phalangeridae, it is native to Australia, and the second largest of the possums.
