No one has been able to answer this question yet!  There is no real reason 
for asking this question other than general curiosity.  Well, okay there 
is also a side bet at the office.  I thought that many people would 
probably ask this question, but I guess that some do not care.  Thank you 
in advance for your help.  I only hope that you can stop the insanity! I 
just read something saying that these animals are different.  "Possums are 
Australian".  Well this isn't really the answer that I was looking for. 
Are you saying that They are the same animal however named differently in 
Australia, or that they are a different animal all together?
