Grey Knight made the nesting box on the right for brushtail possums. As of 2010, there are 7 boxes with cameras, one of which is a sugar glider box. For information about how to build a nesting box, click here. (General info about nesting boxes, followed by a pdf file that explains how to make various kinds of nesting boxes.) For GK's additional suggestions/comments, including info about the kind of camera used, click here.

Although possums and sugar gliders sleep during the day, they can still be interesting to observe, especially when they have young. The nestbox schedule/s can be found here.

Some footage is from the nesting boxes, while other clips are outdoor-action clips. Additional/better quality videos will be offered when/if possible. When viewing these movies online, please bear in mind that it may take several moments for the movies to load, and that the camera seems to double a possum's weight (when in a nestbox).

It is now possible to view all of these old Possum TV clips through YouTube, which may be quicker and more convenient than downloading directly from the Possum TV site. Links are provided below.

Watching with sound adds to many of the movies. My favourites are marked with *.
