They seem so much cuter to me than the American variety.
Oh man, is that ever cute!
Looks like teh love child of an opossum and a kitteh!
Possum thinks a couple of squid tentacles would come in very handy right about now…
I always wonder: How come they’re “possums” in Australia, but “opossums” here? And why are theirs so cute while ours are so dang ugly?
I once had an orphaned possum as a (free range) pet. Sometimes I would give him a bowl of beans (a seven bean mix) and he always ate the red ones first. He also loved eating rose petals.
Being married to a New Zealander, I regard possums as egg-eating vermin. Their introduction to NZ was an environmental disaster. Cute, though, and a source of lovely fur.
Interestingly, yhat’s a brushy, which while ubiquitous, is nowhere near the cutest of possums. Ringies are much cuter. But there’s a lot opossum species.
Being a New Zealander, my response is KILL IT NOW!
Very cute, and I believe endangered in Australia, but a rampant and destructive pest destroying our native ecosystem over here. Lovely fur though, just make sure it is sourced from NZ, not somewhere where the animal has a right to be.
Not so cute when they are mating in the ceiling above your bedroom while you are trying to sleep
The possum is marsupial. According to http://www.timetree.org they diverged from opossums 95 million years ago!
