Small, and oh so cute!

Western pygmy possum

You want to beware of the western pygmy possum though. Roaming in packs several hundred strong they can pick the bones of a full grown sheep clean in less than an hour.
Even in small numbers they’re a danger. If the handler in this photo didn’t lose at least the top of that finger I’d be very surprised.
