How lucky are you to see one out in the wild. I have never seen an Albino Ringtail Possum. I know a lady (another wildlfie carer) who lives not far from me, she saw an unusual coloured Ringtail Possum sitting on the same branch with Brushtail Possums. She only saw it the once. I suggested that it may have been a Greater Glider but she said a definate Ringtail Possum, white and a lightish brown?? Ringtail Possums cover around 8 acres of their area. So you might see it again. They come into care occasionally with a redish colour fur, which is very pretty colour. Never an Albina. We have Albino Brushtail Possums in the Narooma area on the South Coast of NSW.
I was out looking for the Brushtail Possums I released last night and I got to see a Sugar Glider walking around on branches. I have some in care at the moment. I can hear them close by at night. This one was quiet and just going from branch to branch. I had never seen one like that. It is such a shame that in some areas - like mine - that people are destroying a lot of the habitat around and a lot of our birds and other wildlife wont be around.
Wallabies and roo's wandering around the streets even in daylight. They wont be too much anymore with no tree's.
