The cutest Possum

We had a visit from the Possum again last night,  Not so timid this time.  maybe he was too hungry.  LOL
Enjoying some dried fruit here.   Last week it was Bananas.  Guess we will have to go get plenty of Bananas in stock for them.     No baby this time.  I hope it is still alive.
We are so thrilled that we have all our little visitors on just a 1/2 acrea.

Hi, I know nothing about posums, are they protected? Very cute indeed!

The first picture (in particular) cries out to be drawn Dors .... :o)

How cute they are ... but I believe they can be a pest if they get into the house/roof space? a little like our squirrels in the UK.

Keeping the little garden critturs fed and happy can be quite expensive can't it? We now have 3 hedgehogs and they don't like the commercial hedgehog food we bought especially for them. they have dog meat (chicken flavour/not in gravy), mild cheese, dried fruit and chopped unsalted peanuts!!

Hi Blu. Yes Possums are protected. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Possum\

This will tell you a lot about our Possums Blu.

Tell me about it Sue. The Magpies eat steak. The possums have fruit.
They are always hungry too.
Oh your hedgehogs must be bringing the relo's hehehe. must be good tucker at your place.

do I feel a possum drawing coming on?

Awwww, it's so hard to fathom that your possums and ours here in the US are even related! Ours are sooooo ugly in comparison.

These look nothing like our possums in the US. Ours are not as attractive.

If you'd like more 'possums, do let me know. We're "blessed" with the little scavengers!
