The common ring-tailed possum is native to woodland and rainforest regions of Australia. This small nocturnal marsupial is a member of the newly created order Diprotodontia. Unlike other possums, this species is strictly herbivorous, feeding on a variety of plant parts including leaves, berries, flowers, bark and sap. Populations have declined in recent years due to habitat loss and fur harvesting.
