There are 23 known species of possum in Australia. Possums are divided into three major families:


  • Ringtail possums and Gliders

  • Brushtail possums and Cuscuses

  • Pygmy possums and Feathertail Glider


The fine details of the relationships between the possums is still unclear. The Australian possums were named because of their supposed similarity to South American Possums. Tasmania is home to five species of possum:

  • ​Brushtail

  • Ringtail

  • Sugar Glider

  • Eastern Pygmy Possum

  • Little Pygmy Possum
