Can you spot the new baby? Just below Tippy’s paws is the dark curl of the new baby’s tail, just peeking out of her pouch.
Tippy is one of my hand-tame possums who visit every night for food. I’ve been feeding her banana as well as apple because when I first saw her baby out of the pouch a couple of nights ago it looked a little under-nourished. Tippy herself is very small (and quite weird).
