Brush Tail Possum with Joey in Pouch
This girl is getting pretty heavy, her joey should emerge pretty soon and then I'll try to snap a photo of a two headed possum!! Very cute!
She is sitting in one of my olive trees in my back yard, another possum lurking in the back ground (not in shot). The elder females certainly seem to hold the sway though.
The common brushtail possum is a nocturnal, semi-arboreal marsupial of the family Phalangeridae, it is native to Australia, and the second largest of the possums.
