This possum was found by a busy highway, and held for an undetermined amount of time by the person finding her before being brought into care. She came in at just over 100gms, presented with black tarry stools and extremely strong smelling urine. Was very quiet, but not obviously sick (other than above presentation), and was in reasonably good condition for her size. Was treated under vet care with a number of antibiotics with little progress until recently. Vet found her urine to be extremely alkaline (almost off the scale), but no particular disease or parasite was identified. He felt that she had suffered a severe bowel and urinary tract infection, and that the black tarry stools were blood, which was later trying to be absorbed by the liver. Has recently made a good recovery. Her colouring is very unusual, and quite spectacular.
