This is a Opossum found in the Americas

When we think Marsupials, we think Australia and we think Kangaroo or Koala! This is a Opossum found in the Americas. There are 110+ Subspecies.

The gestation period of a female opossum is 12 to 14 days .

They give birth to 20 young but only those that are able to teat survive

When threatened or harmed they will “play possum” making the appearance of a sick/ dead animal!
