A curious ring-tailed possum inspecting a movie camera

We could only imagine what was going on the moment the adorable photograph above was taken by the folks from Australia’s Department of Information. The cute furry dude (identified as a “pet ring-tailed possum”) holding on to the movie camera must have been a welcome light-hearted scene, as it was taken around the Second World War (1939 – 1945).

Have any of your furry friends taken an interest with your cameras the same way? It must have been an amusing sight!
