Striped Possums seen mating

Matt, one of Mason's Tours guides, has recently broken his Striped Possum drought in specatacular fashion!
On the estuary section of his walk he heard nioses similar to the calls of Flying Foxes, but closer inspection revealed that it was two Striped Possums mating.
The group was able to watch the two possums for some time. It was a lucky sighting as they are more commonly seen in the winter months.
