Sasha's new baby is now back-riding and has been named Shane. I think Shane is a boy.

Pax is visiting regularly and looks healthy.

I apologise on behalf of the possums for there not being any action in the box cameras. I would like to be able to give a Baby Possum Alert for Christmas - Sasha's latest baby is most likely now at that stage - but for the past two weeks all of the possums have been completely avoiding the boxes.
A quick update for anyone who has been viewing the box cameras and may be worried about little Pax.
Pax is still around and looks healthy and has been visiting the house every couple of nights.
Here is a photo of her visiting tonight.

There has been some sad news.

If you have ongoing contact with possums, you will inevitably have to deal with some tragedy. Possums live dangerous lives and it's only a matter of time before something distressing happens - and usually when you least expect it.
Wink has reached the stage where he no longer back-rides on Sasha and gets chased off if he comes too close to her while eating, but he still shares a sleeping place with her virtually every night.
