Possums, Gliders and Cuscuses

(Family: Phalangeridae)

Possums, Gliders and Cuscuses are a large assemblage of around 30 arboreal, mostly nocturnal marsupials, and include the pygmy-possums, striped possums, Leadbeater’s Possum, lesser and greater gliders, ring-tailed possums, Honey Possum, feather-tailed gliders, cuscuses and brush-tailed possums. Some species readily enter houses and search through bins for food, with their diets mainly consisting of plant matter, including fruit, pollen, nectar and sap, but they also eat insects, bird eggs and even nestling birds.
