We've never seen a possum before

NIKON D70 - 1/500 sec, f4.5 at 31mm

Today while driving between Karori and Johnsonville via Makara there was some sleeping possums on the road. The Giblets wanted a closer look so we stopped and inspected one of them.

Amusingly, this guy had a pair of skid marks on the road that stopped just short of his furry little body.

There was some head trauma, some lesions, some contusions and definitly a haematoma. He probably needed Intensive Care, but unfortunately didn't make it there inside the Golden Hour and so snuffed it right there on the road, at the end of some skid marks.
