Rat, Mice, Possum, or Cockroach Droppings?
Want to know what possum poo looks like? Check out the animal dropping images and descriptions below to help you identify common pest type droppings found across Australia.
Ringtail Possum Pellets
Ringtail Possums produce cylindrical pellets that are generally smaller than those of the Common Brushtail Possum. The pellets are usually found in groups of 3-6, have a granulated surface and both ends are usually rounded. Pellet colour varies with diet.
Bushtail Possum Poo
Brushtail Possums produce cylindrical pellets (droppings) that vary in size and colour due to their wide variety of diet. Possum poo is usually found as a group of individual pellets or may be found grouped in clumps or as strings (from hair or plant material ingested).
Black Rat Droppings
Black rats produce narrow cylindrical pellets with one or both ends that are pointed. Pellet colour varies with diet but is commonly a dark brown or black colour.
Mouse droppings look similar to rat droppings, but size is the key differentiator when it comes to identification. Mouse droppings are generally 0.2cm to 0.6cm in length and resemble dark grains of rice.
Large Cockroach Droppings
Large cockroaches leave solid dark droppings which are cylindrical in shape and have ridges down the side.
German Cockroach Droppings
German cockroach droppings look like ground pepper or coffee grounds and are commonly found where they congregate.
