Common Spotted Cuscus

Collection of scaled drawings of Common Spotted Cuscus in various poses with height and length

The Common Spotted Cusus (Spilocuscus maculatus) is a marsupial that lives in the Cape York region of Australia, New Guinea, and nearby smaller islands. It has a round head, small hidden ears, thick fur, and a curled, prehensile tail that aids in climbing. The tail is a distinctive characteristic of the Common Spotted Cuscus; the upper part of the tail is covered in fur, and the lower half is covered in rough scales. As the dentition is unspecialized, the species eats a wide variety of plant products, and it will also eat flowers, small animals, and occasionally eggs.

Common Spotted Cuscuss have a shoulder height of 8”-13” (20-33 cm), body length between 14”-24” (36-61 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 6.5-15 lb (3-7 kg). The tail of the Common Spotted Cuscus is 13”-22” (33-56 cm) in length. Common Spotted Cuscuss have a typical lifespan of 8-11 years in the wild and up to 17 years when raised in captivity.

Marsupials are mammals characterized by the pouch the mother has for raising and protecting her young. Marsupials are most commonly associated with Austrailia, where Kangaroos and Koalas are found, but marsupials, specifically the opposum, are also found in North, Central, and South America.
