I am Barry the possum man. I've been living in Brisbane in South-East Queensland, Australia, my entire life and during that time I've always had a close relationship with possums. When I was a boy I used to feed the little possums that would live in the trees near our place in South Brisbane and some of them would even let me pat them. When I got older people would ask me for help when they had problems with possums eating the vegetables growing in their gardens or if one of even a family of them made a home for themselves in the roof of their houses. I never intended to work with possums but over time I just sort of fell into the role and people started calling me Possum Man Barry instead of just Barry, or even sometimes just referring to me as "The Possum Man". I don't mind though because I really do love possums and I feel like I understand them better than most people. Read Less

Ever since I was a little boy people have know I have had a strong affinity with possums. Sometimes people would refer to me as the Possum Whisperer, Possum Guru or the Little Possum Kid. As I grew older that changed to the Possum Man, which is what I'm commonly called these days when helping people who have problems with their new "neighbours". I used to live in South Brisbane where these cute little fluffy creatures were quite common, but as the city expanded they got pushed further and further away. I moved to the outer suburbs of north Brisbane over a decade ago, where new housing estates are pushing into the new natural habitat on a regular basis. This has caused a lot of problems for people living in these new areas in dealing with the possums who also consider these areas their homes. Read Less
I've never met anyone who loves possums as much as I do, but ever since I divorced from my ex-wife I've always wondered if there are any ladies out there who are like me. I don't know many people who love these creatures as much as I do. Dogs and cats yes, but possums no. That's really sad because possums are love… Read More
I've never met anyone who loves possums as much as I do, but ever since I divorced from my ex-wife I've always wondered if there are any ladies out there who are like me. I don't know many people who love these creatures as much as I do. Dogs and cats yes, but possums no. That's really sad because possums are lovely creatures, definitely as nice as cats, and I would consider as nice as dogs too. People just don't know or understand them well enough. If anyone out there loves possums too, please get in touch with me. I'd love to make friends with any possum women in Australia, we'd have so much to talk about! Read Less
