This past week has been busy with nocturnal activity from brushtail possums. There has been much banging and clanging around underneath the house, running up and down the veranda, running along the tin roof, screeching and that weird machine-like noise they make.
We saw this female possum with a full pouch in amongst a clump of trees by the house together with another female possum.
This female possum and her joey are regular visitors. She’s been around for several years now and is very friendly and her joey is quite cute. And yes, she does have a wound on her right hind leg but it appears to be healing on its own.
Caught these guys up on the roof a few times among the solar panels.
And then there’s this female possum with a joey’s tail and little leg sticking out of her pouch!
And here she is with the joey on her back last night. (This photo shows up best on small screens).
What a cutie! 🙂
