Photo @jasonedwardsng A critically endangered Mountain Pygmy Possum cradled in a zookeepers hands. Part of a captive breeding program, these tiny marsupials enter a state of torpor during the winter months where they sleep and exhibit decreased physical activity. Habitat loss and feral predators such as cats have devastated wild populations. I wish I slept this well sometimes! .
