All about zoo animalsImpossible Possum

Real name: Brushtail Possum

The Brushtail Possum is a marsupial, which means that they carry their young in their pouch.

They are nocturnal, so they are awake during the night.

They live in trees in Sydney, often found in backyards, as well as throughout Australia. Their habitat is in bushlands and forrests.

They like to snack on fruit. Their main diet is trees and shrubs.

They are about as big as a cat. Their fur is thick and keeps them warm.
