Possum status update 21st July 2012

The python (I'm assuming it's Grendel although I still don't know for sure) is still sleeping under the eaves.

Wasabi, who had been making himself scarce since Grendel returned, has started visiting again. He has collected a couple of new scratches on the face but is otherwise in very good health.

Possum status update 15th July 2012

All of the possums are still around and in good health. Marlon (pictured below) hasn't visited for a while but has been seen sleeping in nestboxes.

Possums in Garage Doors

Recently, Flea has taken to sleeping in the garage door.

It's quite common for possums to sleep inside rolled-up garage doors. It's not clear what the attraction is. I can certainly think of a number of negatives: It's closer to the ground than possums usually like. A metal door is going to be cold in the winter and hot in the summer. The door rolls up or down at random times when people use it, which must be at best annoying, and at worst there's the danger of getting caught up in the mechanism.
