Common Ringtail Possum

Pseudocheirus peregrinus

Description:

About the size of a small cat, long, thin tail with white tip.

Habitat:

Lives in trees, usually active at night. Bushland and suburbs.

Notes:

Normally you wouldn't find one on your doorstep but this little one was unwell. He was taken to the local vet's and treated with antibiotics for an infection. Nine days later we picked him up and returned him to his 'drey' in the hedge.
