Behind my house, heard neighbors dog barking. I went outside, looked up and there he was. I grabbed my camera and the rest is history.

    Oh that it soooo cute. What kind of possum is that, is it a sugar glider or what. Very different to possums here.

  • This is the only marsupial in the US. As far as I know, its simply just called and opossum or possum for short.
