For a few days now, Sasha's latest baby (her 14th) has been venturing out of her pouch when in the nestbox. So now is the time for a Baby Possum Alert.
First some very sad news; Marcel was hit by a car on the road. He was found in the morning, badly injured, and had to be euthanized by the vet. He has been buried in the garden next to Rahmet.

Shane has brought (at some risk - see later) her first baby to show the humans. The baby is a tough and active one and has been named Jedi. I think Jedi is female, but I'm not sure.

Sasha's latest baby is back-riding and has been named Blake. Wink's baby has also just started back-riding and has been named Blossom. Here are photos of the two youngsters on their first visits to the house.

On a couple of occasions recently, four possum boxes have been occupied simultaneously. Not only that, but all of the possums are females with pouch babies, so there were actually a total of eight possums in the boxes. This would have to be a record.

Despite its small size and the relatively cold temperatures, Sasha's latest baby (her 13th) is now venturing out of her pouch when in the nestbox. So now is the time for a Baby Possum Alert.

It has been longer than usual since my previous update, but at least no dramatic events have happened in the interim. All of the possums are still visiting and healthy.
Walt has become a regular visitor.
