It was a male weighing 155g, was 170mm long (head to base of tail) so a lot larger than the first one, a kiore. It was caught in the trap by the drive so that's one apiece now for my two Victor traps. It would be really good to catch one in the Nooski trap, just to confirm that they work!

It will be really good to get my 30 new Victor traps set up once the parts have arrived. I've also ordered 6 Warrior possum traps from www.connovation.co.nz along with Ferafeed baits. These are non-toxic baits that can also be used in the rat traps.
