This little guy visited our yard today. He was forging for some left-over bird seed under the feeder.
Did you know?
- Opossums are the only North American marsupial. Marsupials carry and nurse their babies in a pouch. This makes them a part of the Kangaroo family.
- Opossums play dead when frightened. As a bonus, while they are playing dead they also drool and poop green mucus. Yuck! It’s enough to make most enemies leave.
- Special tails allow opossums to grab branches and “hang out”.
