Description

Come meet the opossum, a hardy little night creature who is North America's only marsupial. While you're sleeping, he's busy foraging for food. His mate, the mama opossum, doesn't have to carry food back to her young because they are either snuggling in her pouch or riding on her back. With ancestors dating to the dinosaur, today they can be found right in your own backyard!
