Playing the odds


After that unfortunate incident, small wonder that the brushtail possums are cautious. I felt bad after inadvertently waking this snoozer yesterday afternoon, but it soon went back to sleep.



Today, it had reassurance and, possibly, insurance against untoward events.

The encounter with the python, which is still etched on my memory!

They are rather cute, those possums. Not sure which of them peed on the door mat, but it was one of them. Luckily, the door mat's washable.

Such a little cutie! Glad to hear that the python wasn't trying to swallow this one.

Oh, Jeni, that's pretty darned cute!

Bernie, I'm hoping the python has learnt to be a bit less ambitious!
