Almost Wiped Out By Bushfires, World's Smallest Possum Found

Postby oneh2obabe » Dec 9th, 2020, 11:01 pm

Not many left - only 113 formal recorded sightings on Kangaroo Island - but hopefully the numbers increase.

After the horrendous bushfires in Australia that burnt almost half of the island, killing a significant number of wild animals, we finally have some good news! As reported by ABC news, in the recovery efforts, the conservation group Kangaroo Island Land for Wildlife found a tiny creature that they feared might have been wiped out by the fires - the world's tiniest possum, the pygmy possum.

These tiny guys who weigh no more than 7 grams and who can easily sit on top of your finger are found in very few places in the world - that is, if you can find them at all. Their size not only makes them hard to study, it also makes them quite elusive little beings.
