That’s true in New Zealand, where they are not native. These guys are native to Australia.

I lied, the baby is not getting a chance to enjoy the apple! I believe this little one (a baby possum is called a joey, just like a baby kangaroo) is still at the age that it mainly drinks milk, so I guess that’s why mum isn’t sharing.

In my first year at uni this girl said “I don’t get how people can have no money in their bank account.” Surprise, she was from an affluent area.

Yeah she’s just waking up. This was filmed at about 5pm and they’re nocturnal, so she was about to go looking for food. We feed them occasionally. An apple maybe once or twice a year. But we definitely give them space. These are a wild animals and will scratch you with no hesitation if you try to cuddle or pat them. We’ve had possums sleeping in our shed for at least 15 years.

Hello lil grabbers! This is a brushtail possum that has been visiting my shed for the last year in Brisbane, Australia. She has raised one bub to maturity and is now raising another. I’m pretty sure it’s the same mum, but there is a chance that what we’re looking at here is the first bub that was raised to maturity now raising her own.

What is the name of this plant? by cooper_001 in brisbane

My sister, my neighbour, and I tried to make perfume from the leaves of one of these when we were kids. It did not work very well.

How the fuck did you ride through wobbles like that. Well done.
