Brush Tail Possum with Joey in Pouch This girl is getting pretty heavy, her joey should emerge pretty soon and then I&#039;ll try to snap a photo of a two headed possum!! Very cute!<br />
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. Common brushtail possum,Trichosurus vulpecula,adelaide,brush tail possum,joey,south australia Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
