Together As One WL215231

Night-active, the Common Ringtail Possum leaves the drey early in the evening and grooms and forages before returning to its den shortly before dawn. It is gregarious, living in small family groups that feed and sleep together. Pairs are monogamous and may remain pair-bonded for more than one breeding season, although a male’s home range usually overlaps that of two females, and once young are born, the male may impregnate a second female.
