Update 6th Mar 2021

All of the brushtails are visiting and in good health. I know I say that a lot and it's probably getting tedious, but possums live dangerous lives and I'm glad every night that they turn up happy and healthy.

Baby Possum Alert for the New Year

Today, Sasha slept in Box 7 and her latest baby (her 12th) was out of the pouch, so now is the time for a Baby Possum Alert.

Update 24th Dec 2020

 Pax is visiting regularly and looks healthy.

Pax - 24th Dec 2020

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.

Update on Pax

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.

Update 30th Nov 2020 - Some sad news

There has been some sad news.

Rahmet (bottom) and Pax (top) - 15th Nov 2020

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.

Update 29th Oct 2020

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.
