Author's notes

Found two of these guys in my veggie garden and under the smoker... trust they are fine to be left alone? Any breeding concerns?

They are not uncommon in urban gardens. Pet dogs are main problem. GeoffR

They are great snail and slug eaters so a good thing to have in your garden - which can't be said for Brushtail Possums
