The Common Ringtail possum is an Australian marsupial. It has a long prehensile tail and their back feet are “syndactyl” which helps them climb. They eat a variety of leaves and also consume a special variety of faeces that are produced during the day when it is resting in a nest. This behaviour is called “coprophagia”. Sportsman Creek wildlife refuge has a population of these possums living along the riverine vegetation.
