Collateral damage from coziness.

When visiting the Australian wilderness, one ought always to be mindful of the exotic creatures liable to kill you when you’re pulling your boots on or using the toilet. One lucky camper, however, had his morning routine disrupted by something far cuter than a giant scorpion.

In the video below, posted a year ago but making waves today on Reddit, we see just how difficult it can be to take a shower if a possum has taken up residence inside the equipment.

While YouTuber Stephen Paice couldn’t bring himself to disturb his furry friend’s sleep any further for the sake of hygiene, not everyone is willing to be inconvenienced by wildlife:


I don’t know about you, but I don’t think anyone—regardless of species—deserves to be dumped from a comfortable hammock. Plus, I’d just as soon not clean myself with possum-water.
