1/4: Sydney possum treated for burns



Bringing together the Sydney fires and my enjoyment of odd animals, especially on Fridays, here's a possum with cream on its paw pads and nose where it was slightly burned. He looks like he'll be OK!



dave  Friday Jan 4 10:37 AM

What species of possum is that? Or is it just young? Or does it just look funny 'cause it was burned?



warch  Friday Jan 4 10:42 AM

Poor little gipper...I can hear him squeeking.
A few years back I was awakened in the wee hours by a strange squeeking cry out my window. I checked it out and a tiny baby 'possum had fallen into a small but deep ditch between our apartment and the next. Glowwy eyes! ratty tails! Mom possum was about 8 feet away, clinging to the back fence with another baby on her and crying back. Animal rescue begins- I managed to manuever the wiggly and crying even louder thing onto a broom (hopefully not too many pokes to the face!) and scooped it out of the ditch. It ran right to Mom and up a tree. Oh, Be free little glowy-eyed rat thing....

no way

dude that is not a possum. It looks like one of those other whack marsupial creatures that live down there. A possum (they live in LA and I've seen them in trees) looks like a 40lb rat.

Oi Biatch whatcha think ya doin'
Course is a bloody pussum mate, you bloody yakees wouldn't know whot a bloody pussum looked like if a ripped the corcks off ya 'at.

About once week the power drops here because another one of these jumps onto the substation wiring (the frame is grounded - they're not used to that - instant power condit.



Joe  Friday Jan 4 05:51 PM

OK upon further analysis the creature in question is indeed a possum

Jesus.



jaguar  Friday Jan 4 06:37 PM

You be the judge, mate.



Undertoad  Friday Jan 4 06:55 PM

Stop, stop. Joe you're just unfamiliar with the fact that there is an Australian Possum which is a different species than the American Possum, also known as the Ugly-Ass Critter.

Here's the Aussie Possie:



Not quite as ugly as the US version, even if someone has laid a pen on the picture for some reason.



Joe  Friday Jan 4 07:01 PM

whoah

You're right!

I Learn something new here every day.



jaguar  Friday Jan 4 07:05 PM

You can almost see the little can of VB in his hand.

Hey - UT stop insulting our wildlife, anyway our bears(koala) are far cuter than yours so nerrrrrrr

The amazing thing about the Aussie Possie, at least the male version, is its ball sack. That was the first thing I noticed on the original picture - whoa, he's gottum hangin' out, doesn't he? Lucky those weren't burned.


jaguar  Friday Jan 4 07:13 PM

Oh man its soooo tempting to say sooo many things.
