The Australian native possum can be seen as a pest or as a friend, I like to see most animals as friends. The possum can turn into a friendly animal and loves to be fed. These are google found images however it shows how you can feed and get up close.
we've had them that quiet they will jump on us from the tree. They have amazing strength in their tail alone and it grips just like a hand does. Baby possums are just as enthusiastic about food as adult possums.
