Opossums are North America’s only marsupial, and very common yard and trashcan invader. They are about the size of a housecat or smaller and are primarily found at night, although it is not uncommon to spot one during the day. Generally, Opossum faces are white and the fur on their body is a mixture of colors from white to brown and gray. They are equipped with an opposable digit and prehensile tails. An Opossums diet varies greatly and they will consume almost anything that is easy and accessible. Because it is not in their best interest to expend energy or risk injury, Opossums rarely hunt their food. As opposed to Raccoons and Skunks, it is not likely for an Opossum to carry rabies, but it is always a good idea not to approach wild animals, even if they seem friendly.
