Autumn in Australia, which is in the southern hemisphere, takes place in the months of March, April and May. The mellow temperatures, wonderful sunsets and end-of-summer harvests make this season a sight to behold.
The possum is a small to medium-sized marsupial native to Australia. Australia has 13 species of large Australian Possums. Possums are an arboreal herbivorous marsupial. Put simply arboreal means that they live in trees, and herbivorous indicates they are plant eaters. All possums are marsupials so just like the koala and the kangaroo they have a pouch in which they carry their young.
The smallest possum is the Little Pygmy Possum with an adult head-body length of 70mm and a weight of 10g. The largest is the Bear Cuscus that may exceed 7 kg. Possums are typically nocturnal marsupial and at least partially arboreal. The various species inhabit most vegetated habitats and several species have adjusted well to urban settings.
