"Possum" in context

Possums are small marsupials native to Australia and New Zealand. There are two types of possum species - the Common Brushtail Possum and the Common Ringtail Possum. Both species are mainly nocturnal, so they are seen foraging for food during the night. Possums are omnivorous animals, meaning they will eat both plants and animals, including insects, small mammals, eggs, and fruit.

Possums have an amazing ability to climb, which helps them move easily from tree to tree. Possums are also able to hang upside down and sleep - something only other marsupials can do.
