    Hi Emma -- Despite what many say, I enjoy having brushy-tail and ringtail possums around my house. Outside our front door we have a possum box in a tall eucalyptus tree. A brushy-tail possum uses it from time to time but of course the only day view we get of this sleeping possum is his "bottom" sticking out of the possum box. All of my children call him "possum-bottom" and that name seems to have stuck. Lots of fun. Cheers Ken
