The (Pseudochirops archeri) is a species of ringtail possum found only in N. Australia.

The Green Ringtail Possum () is one of the several rare and endemic species found only in northern Australia tropical rainforests. With an unusual green tinge, this is the result of black, yellow and white hairs in its fur. With this excellent camouflage this animal can be observed at all levels of rainforest by a trained eye or by pure accident as it crashed to the ground from an height of 15 metres and surviving to tell the story.

This solitaire animal, is also the only one lacking a conventional sleeping den, resting in exposed branches at all hours of the day and night and in all types of seasonal conditions. Over a period of 15 years, a significant decline of numbers has been noticed in tropical rainforest areas where once, common numbers where repeatedly accounted for … and they are not alone.

Very interesting post.

This is one I never managed to see up north – I did see striped possum, lemuroid ringtail, tree kangaroo and other great animals while lecturing and leading field trips at SFS, Yungaburra years ago – and also saw several macropods, owls and platypus with Alberto a little while later. Good to see you’re still around Alberto. Any chance you’ll be joining the wildlife tourism workshop at the Gold Coast in May? http://wildlifetourism.org.au/wildlife-tourism-workshop-2012/
