Brushtail Possum

Brushtail Possum

Trichosurus vulpecula

Brushtail Possums can be found in in forests and suburbia – either in trees or ceilings!

They are cat-sized with grey fur, a black bushy tail and pointed ears.

Brushtails traditionally feed on fruits, flowers and leaves, but in built-up areas have adapted to eat almost anything.

During breeding season possums can get very noisy and heavy calls and grunts can be heard denoting territory and warning of danger.
