Western Ringtailed Possum - Albert
Albert is a rehabilitated Male Western Ringtailed Possum that is now enjoying living @ Yelverton Brook in a protected Conservation Sanctuary.
His human mother is Uta a dedicated Fauna carer that loves to help our endangered native Western Ringtailed Possum. (Possum Centre Busselton Inc) She has helped to care for 60+ possums now and has a wealth of knowledge.
Albert had to undergo surgery to remove a very large Bladder stone of 16mm by the Busselton Vet Hospital in Busselton who donate alot of their time& care to native wildlife from the local area.
See the pics of Albert throughout the surgery and to his new soft release cage at Yelverton Brook.
He is reluctant to leave his comfy wooden box.......
His has been fitted with a radio tracking collar to record his movements and later will be checked to see if his bladder stone has returned or the natural diet favoured by these possums the Peppermint Tree helps his health stay ok.
