In a 4-part experiment laid out HERE, I showed a backyard experiment confirming absolutely that possums are not interested in eggs – even when a lure is pasted on them.
I also encouraged anyone who wished to undertake the experiment themselves, don’t just take my word for it – certainly don’t trust government propaganda that even they admit was sourced from a 3rd-party.
Well, at least one reader has taken up the gauntlet and repeated my trials but using smaller eggs. These were warmed in water before being placed outside.
This short 3 minute video was put together by Neville Du Fall, and includes adding meat to some of the food offered.
To quote Neville “Guaranteed accurate and honest. Eggs warmed by putting in warm water, no scent. Did this experiment 8 times with 7 different wild possums. Non showed any interest. Also used warmed meat, same result.“
So who else wants to give it a go?
