Brush-Tailed Possum, Trichosurus vulpecula

brush-tailed possum

We also saw these marsupial carnivores in Dryandra Woodlands National Park. The first one we found during a night walk when we heard something scrabbling in the trees. A flashlight turned up one of these. The next night this fellow came around to the campsite. They are nocturnal prowlers, ecologically rather like the raccoons we have in the United States.
