Update 25th Dec 2016

The brushtails are all present and healthy. The ringtails have been visiting less often, with only Ruby, Koji and Wasabi having been seen in the past few days.

Mischa is doing well and seems to be evading attacks by the larger possums. His eye wound is now only barely visible.

Baby Possum Alert

Today, Sasha slept in Box 7 for the first time in over a month, and her latest baby briefly came out of the pouch.

This is the first time the baby has been seen out of the pouch.

Sasha often seems to prefer Box 7 when she has babies (hopefully because it's a safer place for them to play), so with luck we'll see a lot more of the little one in coming weeks.

Currently the baby is barely furred and only occasionally emerging from the pouch for short periods - nowhere near the "being a real pest and jumping all over mother while she's trying to sleep" stage - but they grow up quickly, so stay tuned.
