Last night we closed the kitchen door after cooking dinner so as not to let the salmon smell permeate the entire flat. Well, I was going about my business in the "lounge" - drawing etc when I heard a "scrumful" type noise from the kitchen - I thought to myself "Hmm..something must have fallen over or..." so I opened the kitchen door and I came face to face with this cheeky chap with his hand in the garbage bin! Then while I was frantically scrambling for the camera his friend came in too! Talk about bold!
Actually we have a theory about these two - they are so exceptionally brave and human savy that we think that they might be the little babies we saw riding around on mum's back last Summer season. So, they have "grown up" around us and so have no fear. These two live in the forest of trees out in our back yard and in the roof.
But for all the American readers out there I also wanted to point out how different an Aussie possum looks to a North American possum or opossum I think they're called. I haven't gone into the biological history of the two species but I think I might because they look pretty different to me.
