Fox, Common Brushtail Possum & House Mouse – Flowerdale.

March 21, 2011

Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) This Common Brushtail Possum seems to know how to look into a camera lens!

These images are from a Flowerdale property, on Moores Road.

Location of the remote camera was in a steep, partly burnt gully with remnant Red Stringybark (E. macrorhyncha) & Long-leaf Box (E. goniocalyx) and scatterd Yellow Box (E. melliodora). This patch of vegetation is connected to other remnant native woodland in the district.

The remote camera and bait station were set up at a large fallen tree.

Three species were detected at the site: Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes), Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) and the introduced House Mouse (Mus musculus). Each of these animals looks to be in very good condition (though its a leap of faith with the House Mouse), reflecting the bounty of the season. Just look at the sleek coat on that possum!
