    Common Types Of Possum That Are Found In Adelaide

    Common Brushtail Possum

    The name of these possums is given based on their furry tail. Common Brushtail Possums are native to Australia. These possums easily find their path at night as they are nocturnal pests. Brushtail possums love to eat eucalyptus leaves. Also, sometimes they can eat rats. This species of possums is considered as the second most popular species. The body colour of these possums can be found in different variations such as black, silver-grey, brown, and gold colour variations. Also, these possums have a unique feature – their tail that has a grasping ability and helps them to move from one tree to the other.

    Common Ringtail Possum

    These possums are grey, with a cream-coloured stomach and white patches under the eyes. Just like Brushtail Possums, they too have a prehensile tail that helps them in better mobility. The tail of Ringtail Possums is occupied with a white tip of quarter length. The molars of Ringtail Possums come with pointed cusps. This attribute makes Ringtail Possums scarier when they bare their teeth.

    Possums mark their living territory with the special type of odour that they secrete from their glands. So, if you notice any such condition, then disinfect and sanitize that place so that no odour is left.
    However, if you can trap the possum, try to locate them in the hollow logs of the tree and hanging wooden boxes.
