Scientific Name Spilocuscus wilsoni

The blue-eyed spotted cuscus or Biak spotted cuscus (Spilocuscus wilsoni) is a species of marsupial in the Phalangeridae family. It is endemic to the islands of Biak and Supiori in the Cenderawasih Bay in West Papua of Indonesia. Only scientifically described in 2004, it appears to be very rare, likely due to hunting and habitat loss, and has consequently been rated as critically endangered by the IUCN. Recent surveys have failed to find any wild individuals. Unlike all other members of the genus Spilocuscus, this relatively small species has distinct pale blue eyes.
