The Australian opossum skins are available in limited quantities. They are fully furred skins with tails but no heads or feet. The trading post quality are #2 grade skins from New Zealand. They are good quality skins and may have a few small imperfections. These skins are perfect for fly tying. They may also be used to make garments, blankets, and other items. Australian opossums have softer and fuzzier hair than North American opossums.

The skins are approximately 20" to 23" long and 7" to 10" wide measured on the skin side. Tails are about 10" long. As these are natural products, there will be variability from skin to skin.
