Possums have a mixed reputation. I love ’em, even when they run across the roof in the middle of the night sounding like Santa and all his reindeer. When it comes to the fruit trees, they tag team with the Sulphur-crested Cockatoos. The birds tuck in during the day; the possums take over after dark. Between them, they manage to get almost everything.
