North America's only marsupial (female has a her
young in her pouch until they are about 2-3
another 1-2 months whenever they are away
from the den.

Females have litters up to twice a year (the father
always skips town!). Babies, typically 5 to 8 in a
litter are ready to leave mommy's pouch and
walk around out on their own by 4 months of
age. That's when they are 7 to 9 inches, nose to
rump, and weigh about 10 to 16 ounces.

Opossums have a prehensile tail. Prehensile
means that the tail is adapted for seizing,
grasping, and wrapping itself around objects.
The common picture of Opossums hanging by
their tails is, for the most part, a myth. A young
Opossum may hang briefly by its tail. But an
adult Opossum's body is far too heavy to be held
suspended by its tail. The Opossum actually
uses its tail to stabilize its body while climbing.

They help to maintain a clean and healthy
environment. They eat all types of insects,
including cockroaches, crickets, beetles, etc.
They catch and eat Norway Rats, Roof Rats, Mice,
and consume dead animals of all types (
carrion).
They like over-ripe fruit, berries, and grapes.
And they think snails and slugs are a delicacy!

Habits:
Solitary and nocturnal: usually slow moving;
when frightened they will hiss or growl and show
their 50 sharp teeth when frightened; but, in
reality, they are gentle and placid- they prefer to
avoid all confrontations and wish to be left
alone. If they are unable to flee, they may fall
into an involuntary shock-like state, "playing
possum".

Solution:
Opossum exclusion, trapping and relocation is
the only humane way to remove these gentle
marsupials.

Our scavenger  friend, the Opossum, has become a pest to our homes as they raid garbage cans,
dumpsters, and other containers. They are attracted to
carrion (carcass of a dead animal) and can often
be spotted near road kill. Opossums also eat grass, nuts, and fruit. They will hunt mice, birds, insects,
worms, snakes, and even chickens.
