The eastern pygmy possum (Cercartetus nanus) is a diprotodont (diprotos, meaning “two front” and odontos meaning “teeth”) marsupial of south-eastern Australia. It lives in southern Queensland to eastern South Australia and also Tasmania, it is found in rainforest areas.

Eastern pygmy possums are very small, weighing from 15 to 43 grams and having a body length of between 7 and 9 centimetres with a 8 to 11 centimetres tail. They are dull grey above and white below, with big, forward pointing, almost hairless, ears and a long prehensile tail, with thick fur at the base that becomes sparser towards the tip. They have long whiskers, and a narrow ring of dark fur around each eye.
