Opossum

Opossums – Opossums are common throughout the Southeastern United States.  Adapting to any habitat, they can be found in both rural and urban areas.  It is the only marsupial in the states.  Marsupials are animals that rear their new born young inside a pouch of the females.  When the young is old enough to come out of the pouch, they ride on the backs of their mothers until they grow old enough to keep up with her.  Most opossums have gray fur and white faces, although the fur color may vary with different shades of gray.  They can become invaders of homes looking for suitable food, water or shelter.
