Artist's Description


Possums are sweet babies to raise. You’ll laugh at them at this age. They play with anything and are their best at snuggling. They shouldn’t become used to all humans, but contact with their rehabber is important to their well-being.

Once you raise baby possums, your attitude changes toward these much maligned animals. They are omnivorous, eat bugs and carrion, and berries, but once they taste dog and cat food, they look for it near houses. They are slow-moving and gentle, JUST LEAVE THEM ALONE. They don’t have an attack method, so they bare their teeth, hiss, emit a bad odor, drool and eventually faint or play possum. They are the only North American marsupial and are nocturnal.
