trichosurus vulpecula

Common brushtail possums are the Australian marsupials most often seen by city dwellers, as they can thrive in a wide range of natural and human-modified environments. They are inventive and determined foragers with a liking for kitchen raids, fruit trees, and vegetable gardens, as our Wollongong friends well know!

This baby was in the temporary care of our wildlife rescuer friend when we stayed with her the other night. Pretty darn cute.
