Monster possum discovered in Iluka Bowling Club air-con

The monster possum that reluctantly left his safe haven in an air-conditioning fan unit.

A CLARENCE Valley air-conditioning repair man got more than he bargained for when he visited the Iluka Bowls Club earlier this month.

The air-conditioner wasn't cooling well and upon inspection the repair man found what he thought was a huge rat's nest in the fan housing.

"I donned my gloves, planning on ejecting a few pinkies, but when I moved the fan blade I saw what appeared to be Splinter himself," our trusty tradesman said.

"The father of all rats.

"A monster red-headed rodent appeared before me and scurried past my feet.

"I had the camera out already as I was taking a happy snap of the nest.

"Splinter ran initially, before coming about and charging at me.

"He had a face only a mother could love, with busted ears and scars-a-plenty from many battles.

"He came at me looking for high ground, then stopped just short and arched his back, hissing and spitting like a feral cat.

"I moved in for a closer shot of his busted-up face, but he turned tail and ran.

"The Iluka cats must have nightmares about this possum."
