    G'day Mates,
    I'm a newbie here from the States, Lake Amistad Del Rio, Texas. 87 years young and have been a knife maker since 1993.
    I hope to enjoy your forum and maybe add some interest to it.
    Sincerely Bill

                  Hi Bill. How did you get the name Ringtail? We have ringtail possums in Australia.

                    In North America, A Ringtail (sometimes called Ringtail Cat; scientific name: Bassariscus Astutus) is a small carnivorous raccoon-like mammal with gray/brown fur and a black-banded tail found in the southwest United States, northern Mexico.

                        ...Right, so - a possum then?!

                          Not quite. Trying my best not to sound like a smart $&%@, and probably failing miserably, the Australian Ringtail possum is a marsupial, while the North American Ringtail Cat is a nocturnal mammal.

                          But we can agree that while both look cute and cuddly, they both also have very sharp teeth.

                          Cheers!

                            Marsupials are mammals too. The ringtail cat is a placental
                            I have googled it, & it is closely related to racoons, & looks like one. Thanks, jmboz.

                            It has a bushy tail patterned with light & dark rings. The Australian ringtail has a bare tail that it curls into a ring.
