Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula, Phalangeridae: Possums) SE NSW, Australia

'The Possum' to most Australians. A common cat-sized nocturnal visitor to homes and gardens, especially in Tasmania and Eastern Australia. Unfortunately introduced to New Zealand where it is now a major pest. The film starts with a typical night-time 'camp site marauder' followed by some great footage shot in forest of a female heavy with a pouch young using infra-red illumination.
