Bobuck up close at Pheasant Creek

July 3, 2011

A remote camera trained on a fallen log across a small tributary of Pheasant Creek recorded these shots of a Mountain Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus cunninghami), also known as a Bobuck.

The Bobuck has shorter, more rounded ears than the Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), and inhabits wetter forest areas.  It prefers gullies and, although arboreal, spends much of its time feeding on the ground.  Fungi form a significant part of its diet.
