This book provides information about the habits, diet, and behaviour of possums - all the things that a fostercarer needs to know to look after possums effectively. It provides practical guidelines for both the Common Ringtail Possum (Pseudocheirus peregrinus) and the Common Brushtail Possum (Trichosurus vulpecula). The author has achieved a high level of success in raising orphaned, injured and displaced possums, and has had the privilege of following the successful rearing of young in the wild by possums she has reared and released.
The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs of possums in various stages of development.
