Ringtail Possum (Pseudocheirus peregrinus)
Blossie is a female Ringtail Possum who was born in the wild a decade ago. One night Blossie was bought into a house in Mosman by the owner's toothless cat. Blossie was very lucky that it was an old cat without teeth that had picked her up or she would very likely have been killed. The owners noticed Blossie was still a little shaken and took her to the Wildlife Clinic at Taronga Zoo. Blossie immediately made friends with another orphaned Ringtail Possum, Storm, who lives at the Education Centre. On her first morning at the Education Centre, Zookeepers found Blossie curled up with Storm in a possum box.
