Male Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)

Two mothers, two sons, one uncle, one nephew, one grandmother, one grandson, one daughter, one sister and one brother and if they get together there's a lot of hissing and barking noises... (yes there are only 4 possums in the shot and none of the above are missing... lucky the fathers didn't show up or I'd be really confused)

One of the boy babies went to great lengths to get my attention for a carrot

Nectarine for the baby

Mum, keeping out of range of baby boy who she is a bit over carrying around at the moment... This is the telescope the moonshots were taken through...

These was possum poo at several spots across the swing bridge at the start of the Nina Valley track. The possums must be using the bridge to cross the river.

Father and Son (Trichosurus vulpecula)

First night she's brought it down to meet me anyway...

Trichosurus vulpecula (brushtail possom) trying to get some sleep in a white peppermint hollow, on Mt Direction, Tasmania.

This little man carried this apple that is bigger than his head up the pole (around a few times on the way up as his little head was twisted by the weight) all by himself.

But he can't lift it so I had to bite it off for him. He's tiny! The brave little angel was trying to catch moths on the window after mummy abandoned him (temporarily - hiding on the telescope 3 metres away)
