Out of the Darkness – Common Brushtailed Possum Kangaroo Island Australia
One night while hanging out in our hotel room on Kangaroo Island we heard some noise on our deck. When I went outside I found this little guy cruising through the darkness. In case you missed the title it is a Common Brushtailed Possum. I don’t understand why they call animals common, because if one was walking down my street in San Diego it would be anything but common. Anyways, I followed him around and he kind of ignored me until he noticed I had some food. Then I was his best friend. He followed me everywhere and even tried to climb on my lap! Now remember I only said I had food, I didn’t give him any until the very end when I handed him a piece of fruit and he grabbed it and ran up a tree. This photo was taken with a Canon 550EX flash. He didn’t even blink. Afterwards I walked around the grounds in the dark and found several other really cool mammals that didn’t mind their picture taken. Wow! That was such an amazing place.
