Opossums - Part 2


While researching my last post I was reminded how cool and strange opossums are, so today I'm sharing some video clips showing some more 'possum weirdness.

If you have a pet door, this could happen to you!

Between barking dogs and the hair-plucking birds, it's no wonder opossums are normally nocturnal.

Opossums don't have the best table manners. CRUNCHY!

While this is cute, it's actually not a good idea to feed your pets outside for this reason. When wild animals like opossums associate people with food, they lose their natural fear of us and it usually doesn't end well for them. (Find out how to feed wildlife naturally here.)

I don't know if this is real or not, but all I have to say to it is LOL!
