Possums & Gliders

Possums are mostly tree-dwelling (arboreal) marsupials, a family which includes brushtails, cuscus, ringtails, gliders & pygmy possums. Depending on the species, possums may be considered as generalist omnivores (e.g. brushtails) or specialist leaf-eaters or folivores (e.g. ringtails & greater glider). Other species feed on insects and plant exudates like sap & nectar (sugar gliders & pygmy possums). Being marsupials, they are born extremely undeveloped and remain in the mother’s pouch during early development. The young exit the pouch once fully-furred and continue to consume mother’s milk until weaning on to solid foods.
Possum milk changes in composition over the course of lactation. We make 2 different stages of Possum Milk Replacer to cater for the different nutritional needs of the developing joey.
