Introducing Koru

Nikita's new baby has been named Koru. Koru looks like a little girl possum. Koru is the Maori word for the spiral shape of an unfurling fern frond and was chosen because when first seen she had her tail curled in a similar shape (even more tightly curled than in the photo below).

Update 5th July 2019 - Baby Possums!

Sasha's baby (her 9th) has just started coming out of her pouch in the nestbox, so now is the time for a Baby Possum Alert.

As a bonus, Nikita has also brought one of her new babies to the house for the first time.
