Green Ringtail Possum (Pseudochirops archeri)

I do not know of any other mammal that has what appears to be green fur (actually its a mix of black, yellow and white hairs that together look green) , the remarkable Green Ringtail Possum is found only in the rainforests of the wet tropics of north Queensland. Typical of ringtail possums it feeds at night, in this case mainly on leaves. Its tail is prehensile. It can be found in small patches of rainforest, the two animals filmed here were feeding along a roadside near the Queensland Atherton Tableland town of Yungaburra.
