Cuscus

The cuscus is the largest of the subspecies of possum, and can grow in length to anywhere from 15-60 cm in length, although most adults come in at around 45 cm in length.

The cuscus is a nocturnal animal that is able to get around in the dark, thanks in part to its small ears and large eyes. The prehensile tail of the cuscus is long and strong, and does not have any fur at the end.

The tail plays an important role in how the cuscus gets around, allowing it to grip onto branches as it moves from tree to tree.
