POSSUM DREAMING

$295.00

Possums, or meedin in Jirrbal, are marsupials with long tails, often found in trees and even in roofs of modern homes. The Wet Tropics region supports the highest possum and glider diversity in Australia. Five of the possums and gliders are endemic and are found nowhere else.

The rainforest endemic possums are the green ringtail, the Daintree ringtail, the Herbert River ringtail and the lemuroid ringtail – both brown and rare white colours. They are confined to the uplands and so occur as a number of isolated populations. For example the lemuroid ringtail possum occurs only above 550 metres on the Atherton Tableland though there is a smaller population on the Carbine Tableland.
