"(Ms Sibilla) used some towels to bundle him up and keep his nails away so she could remove the jar without being scratched," the RSPCA spokesman said.

"She then applied lubricant around the opening of the jar and slowly pulled him out, which is a delicate process.

"The possum was very compliant and just sat there while (Ms Sibilla) removed the jar — she thinks he knew she was there to help."

The possum was taken to the wildlife hospital for a check-up, where he was given the all-clear.

He was released on Wednesday near where he was found.
