Pioneer and settlers handbooks.

Hmmm, looks a bit like our Mountain Brushtail Possum!

C'mon LeLoup, everyone knows the way to cook black squirrel is to burn the sucker. ;)

I was gonna say that you cook black squirrel like you do grey squirrel, just a little longer, but Mr. Hotel sorta beat me to the basic idea.

Very good guys, I can always do with some humour input.
But seriously, I had never heard of a black squirrel in Canada!

I’ve never heard of black squirrels either, but I grew up hunting grey squirrels and still do. Incidentally, from pictures I’ve seen and from nature shows on TV, what they call a possum in New Zealand is not the same animal we call a possum over here. I assume the possum in Australia is the same critter found in New Zealand.

I always thought over there you had opossums, while here we have just possums. Identical ecological niche, but very different animals. Placental vs marsupial. I think. I'm no Attenborough.
