Mammals of Australia Part 2 of 6: Possums and gliders

Hi people,

My biggest adventure of my life, cruising throughout Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia in search of (mostly) birds and mammals! I drove an approximate 47.000 km in a year. It was the best time of my life!

I also wrote an extensive report about the 117 species of mammals I encountered. Due to some splits this number has risen a bit.

Here is part 2 of 6 of videos of these mammals:

Species filmed:

Broad-footed Feathertail Glider, Short-eared Brushtail Possum, Common Brushtail Possum (nominate, arnhemensis, fuliginosus), Common Ring-tailed Possum, Copper Brushtail Possum, Daintree River Ringtail Possum, Southern Greater Glider, Green Ringtail Possum, Herbert River Ringtail Possum, Leadbeater’s Possum, Lemuroid Ringtail Possum, Mountain Brushtail Possum, Rock Ringtail Possum, Squirrel Glider, Torresian Striped Possum, Krefft’s Glider, Western Pygmy Possum and Yellow-bellied Glider.

Seen but not filmed: Savanna Glider.
