opossum





This little guy (or gal), a member of the only North American marsupian clan, has been patrolling our backyard every morning around 6:15 am. Today I picked up the trap and cat food necessary to catch him (or her). Should be an exciting night!

I have an mpeg movie of a mother possum carrying her babies on her back across my front lawn a few years ago. It's so cute! GREAT PICS!

thanks. I'm wondering if there may be babies hanging out somewhere nearby. The kid's really excited about the idea of catching a opossum. I told him there's a good chance that there will be a opossum in the trap when he gets up in the morning.
