We haven’t had a baby for a while.  This little cutie was bought in by Jyoti, she is a baby Pygmy possum who was nearly trodden on, Joyti has named her Cashew! They are marsupials from the family Burramyidae. There are three species of pygmy possum found in South Australia. This is an southwestern pygmy possum (Cercartetus concinnus). Im guessing about 4 months old, she has had a drink and some honey. We will keep you posted!
