A young woman has gone viral after she filmed herself feeding fruit to a possum named ‘Pepper’ through a tiny hole in her ceiling.  

TikTok user Zhane Blaxland, 19, from Brisbane in Queensland, also known as ‘oiyeahnahyeah,’ uploaded a video of a possum who had chewed a hole in the roof above her bedroom. 

The possum laid on top of the hole, so Ms Blaxland poked it which caused the animal to turn around and push its nose through the roof. 

Ms Blaxland grabbed a banana from her kitchen counter, peeled it, and fed a piece of it to the possum through the hole. 

The TikTok titled ‘Day one of making friends with the possum in my roof’ has been viewed 25.9million times and spawned several follow up videos which document her many encounters with the animal.

Ms Blaxland said she already knew a possum lived in her roof because she could hear him running around at night. 

‘He can get very noisy. He lives right above my bedroom and I often hear him scratching and screeching,’ she told UNILAD. 

She said her family home always had possums in the ceiling, so she wasn’t surprised when she found one in her house. 

The TikTok superstar believes there may be more than one possum living in her roof because she can hear the sound of fighting at night. 

‘Which is kind of scary to hear at 2am when I’m trying to sleep,’ she said. 

Even though she feeds the possum from time-to-time and he is usually friendly, Ms Blaxland said he can also be aggressive.  

‘I once went up into the ceiling and he was hissing at me,’ she said.
