Loop - Is a common Brushtail Possum. He was found in a Chook Pen, wandering alone, after his mother got lost. Loop was 200grams when he came into care. He loved to eat all his native leaf and drink his milk (special milk for macropod/mammals - NOT Cows Milk.)
Loop was released back into the wild at the same location as where he was found.
Brushtail are the most commonly rescued possums, but we do have other possum species such as Ringtail Possums, Squirrel Gliders, Sugar Gliders and Greater Gliders. All these species are disappearing from the wild due to habitat loss, cat/dog attacks, barb wire fencing & car hits.
