oddly enough, it took several attempts to get them established. I think, from hazy memory, it was about 6 attempts with groups of mixed sex possums to get the damn things to survive the years. They devleoped a tatse for the navive flora and fauna and the rest is population explosion.
A wee while ago, I spotted a possum on a tree while nite riding in Bottle Lake (for the second time in a couple of months) and this time stopped and hunted for a log to bash it to death with. Damn thing made off before I found a suitable weight branch. Would have made for a great image for any riders comeing up behind me!
