Zoraptor Posted May 24 Share Posted May 24 Possums are generally too big for cats to hunt, but Australia has plenty of native lizards and the like that they go after happily. If they weren't too big we'd have a lot less possums here* where they're a pest species, unlike Australia where they're protected. We also have a lot of feral cats. I've only ever seen one of our cats kill a possum, and it was almost certainly its proudest moment on the planet. That's with 2-3 cats, for 30 odd years. *Indeed as a New Zealander it's almost impossible not to read "hit by cars" instead of "hit by cats" given the number of roadkill possums we get.
