“This possum is the Short-eared Possum which was separated out from the Mountain Brushtail or Bobuck a few years back. The Bobuck only occurs south of Sydney while the Short-eared Possum occurs north of Sydney. The Bobucks lack the melanic (black-brown) morph.” This specimen with baby was found near the headwaters of the Clarence River.
