There's been some very hot days this summer. I have a 4 foot aquarium next to my couch along the wall. I was sitting on the couch a few nights ago watching TV when I heard a tiny sneeze. I turned around and there was a little baby/juvenile possum perched on top of my aquarium drinking the water. After taking a few shots with my camera, I looked up the internet and found out that they can be fed apples amongst other things, so my girlfriend cut a piece and I gingerly handed it to the possum, half expecting it to bite off my fingers. It started licking the apple, then it licked my finger, and then it climbed on my hand and ate the apple. My girlfriend snapped the following shots: It was very hungry. And then, after it finished eating, it curled up and went to sleep in my hand. For a wild animal to do this, it must've been extremely thirsty, hungry, and tired. We wrapped it up in an old towel and placed it in a padded ice cream tub, and I placed the tub on the night stand next to the bed. But my cat woke me up before sunrise to tell me that the ice cream tub had fallen off at some point. We searched all over the house, no sign of the possum. All we can do is hope that it found its family again or is otherwise ok up in the trees somewhere in the suburb.
