- We recently moved into a new home in Monbulk in the Dandenong Ranges, Victoria and are still discovering the wildlife in this particular garden. This evening while sitting outside we were astonished to see a white brush-tail possum (with a darker grey tail) literally walk up to us and and regard us from about 3 feet away. It didn't seem at all threatened by us being so close and then after a couple of minutes decided that it had checked us out enough and slowly dawdled away down into the back yard. :) We have lived up in the hills for many years and have never seen one of this colour only the common grey ones. We are thrilled to have such an unusual animal in our garden.
