In Possum's Plunge, two species of possums find they are not so different after all, despite the gossip each has heard about the other. Pygmy-possums are approximately 7 cm long. The much larger brushtail possums are approximately 55 cm long. Both possums are nocturnal, tree-dwelling marsupials, native to Australia.
