opossums

Opossums are the only marsupials in NA. I love these little guys. And have recused a few and some have been released back into the wild.

Just another little tidbit. If you see a deceased opossum on the side of the road, stop and check to see if they have babies in the pouch. I have had one, were there have been babies in the pouch.
