The critically endangered Mountain Pygmy-possums only occur above the winter snowline in southern New South Wales and north-eastern Victoria. That snowline is rapidly receding, threatening their survival. This infra-red video shows a Mountain Pygmy-possum in the boulderfields at Charlotte Pass, Kosciuszko National Park. Footage: Dr Linda Broome DECCW.

We were able to successfully trap a possum who had taken up residence in the attic after gaining entrance by gnawing a hole under the eves. We placed the trap in the attic and baited the trap with peanut butter and carrots (on a plastic lid). After calling animal control to pick up the critter (and move him to a different outdoor home), there were problems in removing the Possum from the cage. It appears that “Harry” had other ideas about leaving the neighborhood.
