Wildlife Wednesday: Pauly the Possum

A young brushtail possum that was found stuck in a house drain is recovering in the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.

Dr Michael Pyne told myGC that Pauly may have been living in the drain for a while.

“It has been nice and dry for a long time so Pauly probably thought he had a really good little spot. But now that it has started to rain, it has turned into a very bad spot,” he said.


“He has no major issues – just a little bit of bruising from being wedged in the drain.”

See Pauly undergoing an x-ray and an examination in the video below:
