Say his name and watch his ears prick up. Loic and I found him in a field just outside West Lothian, as we got bored waiting outside the zoo for other Flickrites to turn up (my mistake; we turned up on Sunday at the right time for Saturday, i.e. 1h30 too early)

An injured or neglected young ring-tail possum we found on Broulee Island. We left him in the good care of local WIRES volunteers later in the evening ... but not before we named him/her.

Fisher (Martes pennanti)
It is a medium-size mammal native to North America. It is a member of the mustelid family, commonly referred to as the weasel family. The fisher is closely related to but larger than the American Marten (Martes americana). The fisher is a forest-dwelling creature whose range covers much of the boreal forest in Canada to the northern fringes of the United States. Names derived from aboriginal languages include pekan, pequam, and wejack. It is also sometimes referred to as a fisher cat, though it is not a feline. Fishers are omnivorous and feed on a wide variety of small animals and occasionally fruits and mushrooms. They show a preference for the snowshoe hare and are one of the few predators able to hunt porcupine. Despite their name, fishers seldom eat fish. - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_%28animal%29
