We’ve had an ID on the possum mentioned in my previous post.
Local Peter Szaif says that it’s actually a Feathertail Glider … also known as the pygmy gliding possum, pygmy glider, and flying mouse, and it’s the world’s smallest gliding possum so named for its long feather-shaped tail which is just visible in the photograph.
A bit of trivia: the Feathertail Glider was featured on the Australian 1cent coin until it was withdrawn from circulation in 1991. I found a small stash of them in the garage when I moved in and I’m still hoarding them trying to think of a use for them. If the previous owners had handed them in, they would have been melted down for the Bronze Medals in the 2000 Sydney Olympics!
