Pygmy Possum on a branch in a wildlife preserve. Ranging in length between 5 and 10 centimeters and often weighing in at barely over 10 grams, these mini marsupials are found hanging upside down in trees in Australia and New Guinea. They are so small and so difficult to spot that a new species of pygmy possum was just discovered as recently as 2007.
