Every brushtail possum I've seen has reddish eyes

its the cross breed yowie / drop bear that has red eyes like the flames of hell, sharp teeth that can tear a man asunder, and claws longer than a short sword.
I grew up in western sydney and the lithgow panther has been alive in stories for at least 30 yrs, and vids. Originally i heard they escaped from the zoo at warragamba dam ( used to be one there anyway ), and have seen numerous videos of big ass black cats round there, bigger than a moggie at any rate. Until it is shot i spose it will stay an urban myth. Around Dungog in NSW we used to see big cats, locally called em tiger cats, mates grandfather has a photo of him holding one by the tail and the body would be a little under a meter long, with colouring similar to what the thylacine had with lines down their sides. Id love to come across some of them now.
Jindy is on to it! It all depends on the angle of the beam or the animal. Shot many a fox years ago, but would never shoot until the animal was identified. I even saw my mates eye's glow gold as he walked back to the ute. Just the right angle!
Your critter could have been anything.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Others stay for awhile and leave foot prints on our ass
and we are never the same.
Thanks for the info guys. i was hoping yellow eyes would pinpoint it more exact. The shape could have been possum, but it would have been a massive possum. And every possume I've spooked in the past has gone up the closest tree rather than gone off bush. Sounds like I'll never know, just intrigued.
I think it was the urban legend panthers offspring-after it bred with the yowie and the flesh eating koala. I was that close to losing my life, but I battled off the wild animal with all my skill and masculine strength, and it ran off into the bush cowering and whimpering while I calmly rigged my rod daring it to return
