The size of Gray Cuscus or Phalanger orientalis varies between species, but the average body length is 18 in.

The tail is prehensile naked at the end. It is covered with horny papillae. The tail length varies from 28 to 42 cm. The male tail is completely white, while the female tails are white only on the tips.

In adult males, the thick, wooly fur ranges in color from white to medium or dark gray. Adult females color ranges from reddish-brown to brownish-gray. The stomach area is commonly white.

The male has a distinct yellowish chest gland. Usually a dark stripe runs from the head to the lower back. The young of this species are reddish-brown.

Phalanger orientalis have a rounded head with a short, pointed snout, and large eyes, which can be red, orange, yellow, or pale blue. Their ears are small and often hidden by their thick, woolly fur.

The Phalanger orientalis is a species of marsupial in the family Phalangeridae native to northern New Guinea and is now also found in the Bismarck Archipelago, southeast and central Moluccas, the Solomons, and Timor, where it is believed to have been introduced in prehistoric times from New Guinea.

The Gray Cuscus or Phalanger orientalis normally inhabits disturbed habitats. These would include secondary forest, plantations, and gardens. Phalanger orientalis is also found in primary tropical forest.

While living in the arboreal environments, hunters in the area believe that the tree hollows are the preferred den site of the Cuscus.

The Gray Cuscus inhabits the islands of Timor, specifically Indonesia and Timor Leste, Wetar and Leti through the Kai Islands and Ambon, Buru, and Seram.

Gray Cuscus is also found in Misool, Waigeo, Batanta, and Salawati. It ranges as far east as the Bismarck Archipelago, Papua New Guinea, where it is present on many islands including the islands of New Britain and New Ireland.
