For the past week i've seen one of these possums hanging around every night, however last night i spotted a female with her young. Body length 500 mm; tail length 400 mm; weight 4 kg. Cat-sized; usually dark slate-grey, but may be pure black; short round ears; tail not bushy near tip.
Two of several possums that live in my acre yard, which is planted with native rainforest trees. Spotted in lilly pilly and palm trees near swimming pool close to house.
