The chair is a temporary measure to hold up the rotting hand rail on the balcony.

October baby possum discovers pineapple (Trichosurus vulpecula)

Trichosurus vulpecula Common Brushtail Possum

Mum and joey. Normally shots like this are scrapped but this had a brush-like quality I kind of liked

Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)

Not sure if this is a Yellow-footed Antechinus, Brown Antechinus or Dusky Antechinus. I suspect the Yellow-footed Antechinus flavipes.


Caught in with the biscuits... She's been running around the kitchen all day and we have come face to face a few times but with such speed I couldn't tell if she was a native or a baby rat. Definately a native, so she can stay.


With that girth, I also suspect there'll be more soon... She's the most active and bold Antechinus I have ever encountered.

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

Watching out for the mob (Macropus giganteus)

The chair holds up the rotting rail

A mother Common Wallaroo or Euro (Macropus robustus) with her female joey in the rain. The ears are twisted (and blurred from movement) as I was whistling to them to get their heads up from eating.


The joey is more often in the pouch than out and this is the first time I have seen her actually eat grass rather than give up on it within a minute and either hop around like a toy annoying the rest of the mob (about 7 adults including one huge and two smaller males), or get back in out of the cold for a warm drink...

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...

Followed by a carrot

This is the second baby, not sure of gender yet, the other baby is a boy!

A Common Wallaroo (Macropus robustus)

Guess she didn't like the flash that really shouldn't have gone off (Macropus robustus)

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)

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.

Just realised tonight that there is another mummy here as she came up during this session with a full pouch, I have two babies!
