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

Showing the milk vending machine, now located outside the old residence

Hanging upside down by only the front feet in the pouch.

Stealing the birds breakfast

Carrying an even smaller one in her pouch

The chair holds up the rotting rail

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.

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...

Sitting quietly in our gum tree, a Common Brushtail possum keeping an eye on the plums and figs in the trees hanging over the fence.

Father and Son (Trichosurus vulpecula)

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)
