Brushtail Possum
Like Mirrhi, the baby wombat, this Brushtail Possum was orphaned by its mother and hand-raised by a wildlife nurse at Taronga. This nocturnal marsupial seeks comfort in a small cloth sack, which replicates the mother possum's pouch. Some of these pseudo-pouches are hand-knitted by Australian women.
