Small humanoid-like creature captured on trail camera in Australia

What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: YouTube / MrMBB333
A motion-activated trail camera has picked up what appears to be a small humanoid creature peering out of the darkness.
The footage, which was recorded on October 21st near Sydney, Australia by an outdoor wildlife camera with night vision, was recently sent to YouTuber MrMBB333 for analysis.

It shows something unusual in the bottom left-hand corner - a small humanoid-like creature peering out of the foliage with its two eyes shining in the darkness as its head moves from side to side.

This motion seems to have been responsible for activating the motion sensor on the camera.
Of course given the low resolution and darkness, it's very difficult to discern exactly what the creature is - there is every possibility that it is simply an animal such as an opossum that has been illuminated in such a way so as to give it the appearance of a small humanoid.

That said, it's certainly an interesting (and creepy) video and a definitive explanation remains elusive.

You can check out the footage for yourself below (skip to 1:55s for the analysis).

So does this trail camera have a light, or make noise? Why would little Dobbie be so scared and hide in the bushes? It a hyrax!! I think maybe one of them small marsupials. An opposum like some said.  It's not like it waved hands or arms, or showed legs... How did they determine it was humanoid?

We have a few "crow" alarm clocks around here. First light and they are cawing away.

It's a brush tail possum, the most common and numerous possum in the Northeast and South Australia. It's common in Australian suburbs as is ours.
