Hand Feeding a Baby Possum

Well as promised, I have an update on the baby possums that come by for a visit most nights.

This is a video I took  when mum and baby came by for a visit and a snack. I kept very quiet and moved slowly near them as they were eating, and I was able to hand feed the baby a few sultanas. Then another possum turned up wanting a feed and made everyone nervous so they left.

Did you see how the mother checked out what I had in my hand before I gave it to the baby? It was almost like she was giving me approval to feed it to him! 🙂
