Newly Discovered Species 2010: Feather-tailed Opposum
A feather-tailed opossum clings to a tree branch in Papua New Guinea’s Muller Range in September 2009. Though it has yet to be scientifically documented, the elusive species has been reported once before before, on a nearby mountain in 1985.
The possum may have been attempting to catch moths, the researchers said, as it was found near a light trap intended to lure nocturnal insects. Not much is known about the creature, though the structure of its tongue suggests a diet including nectar.
