Common Brushtail Possum at the woodheap – Flowerdale

February 21, 2011

Here we have a very inquisitive Common Brushtail Possum (Trichpsurus vulpecula) inspecting a wood-pile on a Flowerdale property. The stake in the foreground is a bait station, containing a mix of peanut butter, golden syrup & rolled oats.

The first 11 pics are at 5 am and the last 5 are 10 pm that night. This site, or the bait, is clearly attracting this possum. The site was set up in the hope of catching a Brush-tailed Phascogale, but no luck here yet.
