Australia's Golden Brushtail Possum ~ These adorable and rare creatures are an unusual form of the common brushtail possum that get their fluffy golden coats from a genetic mutation that results in low levels of melanin in their skin and fur. They are a rare sight in the wild, being found mostly in small pockets around Tasmania where they have fewer wild predators.
