Sharing Our Living Space with Wildlife



OPOSSUMS

This gentle nomad poses no threat to humans.Sharing our living space with Opossums

  • The opossum rarely stays in one place for more than a few nights and seldom causes any serious problems.
  • Instead of digging their own burrows they use abandoned burrows of other animals. If you eliminate brush piles, dilapidated buildings and holes under concrete slabs, you will eliminate opossum hotels.
  • Leaving pet food and exposed trash outdoors at night is an open invitation to dinner for opossums.
BREEDING: 2 litters per year; 7 young per litter
