The Feathertail Glider is the world's smallest gliding possum and is named for its long feather-shaped tail. Although only the size of a very small mouse (< 80 mm and 10 to 14 g), it can leap and glide up to 25 metres. This one has a joey in the pouch. We think she may have been cat caught and she will be in care for a few days only - fingers crossed!
Along much of the eastern coast of Australia.
