I live in Australia with several ring-tail friends. I wouldn't quite call them pets, and I don't know of anyone who has a ring-tail possum for a pet, though (rarely) some people feed them. They are beautiful animals, and one of mine is friendly. The others are quite nervous around humans. They cannot be relocated into the bush, according to all reports. Apparently they don't survive very long.
