"Apple? Yes, please!"

This Brushtail Possum isn't backward in coming forward to take apple from us. In fact it (she, I think) seems to be making itself quite clear it is looking for a free handout.



And back for more another night.



E-M5 & 60mm macro lens with diffused FL50R flash.

Thanks for looking.

Lovely looking little lady, Ross. Are they a relative to the Wallaby?

Re: "Apple? Yes, please!"

I know people growl about them Ross, but I love having them in the yard.
We have a family of ringtails as well as the brushies, and it is great seeing them.
A couple of nice shots - how did they react to the flash?

Thanks Chevvyf1 & Imageryone.

They aren't cuddly when they're wild like this one even though she comes asking for a feed. I once had to put one back into the cage in my car prior to release (because I didn't want the other wildlife carers know I didn't have a secure enough cage) & I was left with some decent scratches up my leg in the process, but thankfully out of sight through my jeans which saved my embarrassment.

As Jim said. They are both marsupials with pouches, as are many other of our Australian animals.

You can check here for more on
.

Here is another photo of this possum showing her underside of her tail too.



And another photo from last year (of another possum).

Re: "Apple? Yes, please!"

There's still conjecture as to whether the thylacine (marsupial wolf or tiger) is in fact extinct, in spite of the last 'official' one dying in a zoo in the 30's. There's even been suggestions by scientists that it could be 'resurrected' by cloning of tissue from stuffed specimens.

We certainly have a lot of animals that are marsupials here.

I love them too & we have the Ringtails around too with the tell-tale droppings from them where-ever they've been.

Unfortunately, they also thrive in New Zealand & are quite a pest (being introduced) over there so they (NZers) produce these lovely soft scarves & gloves from possum fur there.

Could be just wishful thinking.

Thanks for that. Here's a few roos snapped on my phone up at Mt Victoria (the top of the Blue Mountains) one late afternoon (a few years ago).

There could be similar sights in the UK - there are colonies of wallabies living wild, though I haven't seen any.

Re: "Apple? Yes, please!"

My friend Cathryn has loads of them in her back garden at Widmer Farm, Lacey Green in Bucks, UK ... Black Swans on her pond too and Kookaburra to help her feel more at home in a pseudo Aus environment

She has some on display for the Animal Feed business open days ... check website for details if you want to go photograph some
