Ringtail Possum Rescue / Taronga Zoo

Taronga Zoo keeper is caring for two Ringtail Possum joeys that arrived at the Zoo via the Taronga Wildlife Hospital. Although they’re about the same age, the little boy is much more fragile than the little female, which was found separately. The male joey was found in a nature strip and it’s thought that after many hours of being unable to feed from his deceased mother the youngster ventured out of the pouch looking for food. Lucky for him a Good Samaritan saw the joey and brought him into Taronga’s care. Taronga officials reminded the Australian public, With spring almost here there will be lots of young about, so if you see a dead possum please check its pouch — via ZooBorns
