Product description

Possums are familiar to many Australians, often taking up residence in our gardens and homes. It is the Common Brushtail Possum, the most abundant and widespread species, which most people know, but this is the first book devoted to describing the natural history of the 'larger' possums of Australia, the 13 species belonging to the Brushtail and Ringtail families, including the Greater Glider and the Cuscus.
