Common Brushtail Possum

Trichosurus vulpecula


Native to Australia, and the largest of the possums.


This is the possum that hangs out in our shed and eats all the vegies from my garden. It looks like it might have a young one in it's pouch.

No species ID suggestions

No I've given up on the garden - between the possum and the dog I've got no hope!
