Possum Pickle

by on May.17, 2012, under Uncategorized

On a recent rescue we found this Brush – tailed possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), inside a building. Often possums especially brushies, just get into a pickle. We had to check this fellow since it had been reported in the building for a week. I just love my brushies, they have such a character and each one is ingrained with their own traits and personality.


While some possums can be difficult, this one was all heart. We found some minor abrasions and had a wildlife vet check it all over. The Ok was given and we released it with a possum box back at its original location.
