At some point in our lives, we were all told that fairies do not exist, and cartoons are not real. Fast forward to the future – we have evidence that they were all wrong. The most delightful little possum was found in Australia, and after further investigation of the Internet, he was convinced that he was Pikachu. No disguise.
A rescuer in Melbourne brought an orphan possum to the Boronia Veterinary Clinic, where she lit the room with her bright yellow fur. It turns out that the gold color is due to a mutation that causes a low level of pigment melanin, which gives them their normal color. Or there is another explanation. A cute little bud belongs to a variety of Pokemon, and our life was a lie. So, let’s take a look at this viral cake with a cutie below and be sure to prepare your pokeball.
This rescued brushtail possum was infected with its incredibly orange-yellow hair.
Clinic in Boronia, Australia, announces news of their special Facebook resident
Dr. Stephen Rainish from the Veterinary Clinic and the Hospital of Boronia, who still remembers the day when the golden possum came to the clinic. “It was a long time ago, but it looks like her images will live on the net forever,” he laughs.
Then he talked about their meeting two years ago. “She was brought by a member of the public who found her on earth. We suspect that she fell from her mother’s back. At that time, according to their estimates, she was about 5 months old, and at this age she still had to live with her mother and look after her.
Stephen said that at first she was a little shy, as expected, given the strange situati0n she was in, but 0therwise she was in a g0od m0od and health. The possum spent the night in the clinic, and the next day his guardian took him.
It turns out there are more golden possums, and they are the cutest little creatures
The standard color for possum brush is brown. “However,” Stephen explained, they may have less common color variations, such as this particular yellow possum.” He said that there are other possums with the same color mutation, but they are much less common in the wild.Their vibrant color makes them an easier target for predators because they don’t mask like their brown counterparts.
Caroline Daisy of Victoria Wildlife, a nonprofit organization, said the state has more gold possums, especially on the outskirts of Melbourne. “They call us about them; there are few of them in Victoria.” However, volunteers keep their location a secret to ensure their safety.
Opossum brushes (Trichosurus vulpecula) is one of the most common species in Australia, found in the eastern and northern parts of the continent, as well as in some western regions, Tasmania and several coastal islands.
