On Magnetic island, every day around 5PM, a man comes to feed them. Wild they are, wild they will remain.  Though, they know for sure that every day around five, on magnetic island, between Geoffrey Bay and Alma Bay, they will find food. Cereals, tomatoes, whatever.Capture d’écran 2014-02-25 à 13.59.33They are widely distributed across the country, particularly in more remote areas, either timbered or rugged.

  1. Looks like you felt under the marsupial charm !!! Cause on 4 legs, don’t they look a little like rats or mice ? But ok, on the cuteness’scale, they should be on good place ! 😀 (rats can be very nice too, if not met in a subway station or after an outdoor market 😛 )
