Blossom is one of the smallest species of Marsupial weighing in at only 80 grams. She is an active little creature, coming out at night to search for tasty eggs and insects and other small animals hiding in the canopy   Although she belongs to the same family as kangaroos and koalas she doesn't have a pouch. Instead the babies have to just hold on tight and hope for the best!
