Found a possum at the bus depot tonight. Looked like it had a pretty badly broken rear left leg. Hard to tell what else might have been wrong with it, but it did look like it was okay. No external bleeding, it was awake and aware. Unfortunately by the time I got it to a vet (about 30 mins of stuffing around), it wasn't looking too good. The vet gave it something to make it sleep, but said it was unlikely to live through the night. Doh! :(

At the national museum in Wellington (Te Papa?) they have a possum fossilised in tarmac. It's great. Apparently it happens all the time, as they rot the chemical reaction helps melt the tarmac and they get pounded in by cars.
