Great pics as usual, Chico. I love red squirrels. I am happy to say that there are a few running around here again this spring after my neighbour relocated some last fall.

Love the possum pic too, Chico. Actually what we have in North America are opossums but they are commonly called possums here too. You are lucky to have them, Chico. The only places you will likely find them in Canada are in parts of southern Ontario and the lower Fraser Valley in BC.

As you said, Goldfields, the possums you have in Australia are entirely different from our opossums. They do have one thing in common with each other. They are both marsupials so they carry their underdeveloped young in a pouch.
