A friend of mine is doing her Masters of Science on Brushtail Possums. They’re a nocturnal species of marsupial native to Australia, this species is the Common Brushtail Possum that’s found in southeastern Australia.
She took a photo of one of her girls who’s currently nursing her joeys (baby possums) either today or yesterday whilst it’s been really hot in Melbourne, ~30C. This girls trying to cool her babies down and is lying on her back in her box with her pouch open. She’s a bit scruffy, but cute has hell!
