I love possums unlike a “real” local because thay are considered as pests over here in Australia. I think they are cute and they seem to love me back because I leave some apples and bread outside the backyard or maybe because I name them like “bushy tail” or “rat tail” I don’t know. I usually leave some left overs for them anyway. When they have babies they are kind of proud to show me their little ones. I am delighted to see how the mothers carry them on their backs.
This was such an unusual encounter for me to see him in daylight as possums are nocturnal animals. I named him bushy tail and she proved me that he wasn’t a “he” by bringing her baby possum one night. Nevertheless, I was honoured to meet him -her- during the day while I was taking some rubbish out.
