Caged critter

My fault, I left the roller door open under my house and cute Mr furball brush-tail possum was quick to take advantage and make himself noisily at home.

After failing to encourage it out on it’s own terms, I set a trap! It couldn’t resist the temptation of a juicy carrot dipped in honey, one mischievous possum caught … and released after a prison mug shot.

    1. They’re probably similar to raccoons, in that they get into anything if it’s not secured! The can fit through surprisingly small holes too.


    1. When I was a kid, one snacked on my toe when I tried to encourage it out of a hut we stayed in with my sock covered foot. They bite hard and he wouldn’t let go! They also have sharp tree climbing claws so I treat them with caution and respect.
