Another nature encounter of the Australian kind

I've started a new job at a restaurant that gives me the chance to walk through a park on my way to the train station after my shifts at night. As a result there are lots of Australian possums out and about, I guess scrounging for...whatever possums scrounge for at night.

See that thing that looks like a giant squirrel? That's a possum!

I know this is so silly, but I think they are so cute!

They're the size of a small cat and, from a distance, kind of look like one, too.
Usually the possums are just doing their thing up in the trees, but the other night I got to sneak up on one and because they don't have rabies like our opossums at home, I didn't fear for my safety! So I took a video.

Just thought I would share.

Vicariously yours,
