aaaawwwww.... a baby possum
Yesterday we spent the afternoon down by the river with some friends for lunch.... now there is a fabled possum hole in a tree there (thanks for the info Karen!) and I have checked it once before... but nothing.....
I told the kids to go and check it again yesterday and you should have heard the excited squeals!! The children left some fruit in the hole for the possums... yes possums!! The mumma possum now has a baby... it was so cute.... as possums are nocternal the mum was trying her hardest to sleep while the baby poked its head in and out and munched on our rockmelon!!
