Brushtail Possum

Whilst helping dad clean up the carport storage to we found a few possums sleeping in some one the storage containers. This possum also had a baby with it, so we decided to re-home it into the family greenhouse for the time being. We had a ringtail possum living in there about a month ago. It would seem that my parents house is a bit of a wildlife sanctuary at the moment. Being one of few houses in the area with large trees and established gardens it is a haven for many animals. However, we think that they are coming here, because land is being cleared in the local area. The wildlife has moved in here because there normal home has been destroyed for houseing developments. They are very welcome here, but we are worried about our local environment.

I can't help laughing looking at the possum in your pictures, he's so funny lying comfortably in the bucket!
