Who’s been sleeping in my bed?
A rainbow coloured wake-up call
This week’s reader photo of a common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) being woken up by some noisy rainbow lorikeets (Trichoglossus moluccanus) was captured by Chris Robertson.
The common brushtail possum is the most widely distributed large possum species in Australia, and like most possums, they are nocturnal. They usually make a home in the hollow limbs of trees in areas of woodlands and open forests, like in this image – but can be sometimes found making a home in your roof!
Share your own photography and it could be featured on Australian Geographic online!
