The possum is a small to medium-sized marsupial native to Australia. Usually active at night and preferring to sleep during the day, they nest high up in the trees. Like the kangaroo, the female possum carries its young in a pouch. The possum is protected by Australian law and is an important animal in Australian culture and folklore.
