2 possums playing in a pohutukawa at night so a good opportunity for target practise and with the glowing eyes it is much easier to line up the shot than a body shot.
Night sighting in eucalyptus forest
Baited to catch a cat - but good to know it's functioning!
Field Notes - Fat possum did not care about me taking photos
Found two near trap on tree.
Caught using a Timms
Field Notes - there were 2 but one ran away before I could photo them! banging and crashing around on the verandah.
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.
