No Brush-tailed possum?
The enclosure in the aviary is currently empty. The golden ones were a no show, but that’s hardly surprising given my visit occurred in the middle of Storm Dennis and they’re not showy even on the best weather days!

A reasonably productive day, though common wombats continue to evade me, as absurd as that sounds..

It’s going to be quite time-consuming to win this challenge if you keep taking it one species at a time.
The one time Australians should be happy to be Australian.
Well, except when you plan to spend the majority of the year overseas. Thanks @ThylacineAlive .
"Thanks ThylacineAlive" is the new "Thanks Obama".
Hey, I'm the one who picked marsupials/monotremes when my proposed Australia trip isn't until 2021. Thanks @ThylacineAlive
Apologies if this is too off-topic, but what places are you planning to visit in Australia?
Your integrity is noteworthy, admirable and still very annoying.
That's both a secret and not fully decided yet If it even goes through..
For you and me both!
Go on, I'll play then. Starting off with -
Combe Martin (29/02)
1. Bennett's wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus)
Exmoor Zoo (29/02)

4. Dusky pademelon (Thylogale brunii)
5. Long-nosed potoroo (Potorous tridactylus)

Correct format please
Scientific names would be appreciated moving forward as well
(not that I imagine we'll have a whole lot of confusion as to which common name is for which species as far as marsupials are concerned)
Separate names with a comma.
