This ringtail possum has two babies and would not be awake in daylight normally. We took down a cypress tree and left a hole in her highway home. The little ringtails are sweet, even though they eat my vegetables but then again, they need nurturing. Last Summer, we lost 80% of our ringtails across the State of Victoria from either heat exhaustion or in the fires.
She'd gone when we went back later; found another route no doubt.
