Opossums aren’t particularly fussy about what they eat. Opossums are omnivores, so they eat everything from insects, small mammals, earthworms and amphibians to corn, berries, vegetables and apples. One fun fact is that possums are immune to rattlesnake venom, so they eat a few snakes as well.Opossums are nocturnal and adaptable creatures. Although they tend to wander alone through wooded and open terrain in suburban and rural areas, they’re just as comfortable living in your yard or business location. They use abandoned dens, crawl spaces, woodpiles, sheds, porches, decks and other structures for shelter. Opossums are proficient swimmers and climbers due to their unique naked, prehensile tail. The opossum’s reproductive habits are also unique among mammals. Mama possums produce two or three litters annually. An average litter is composed of seven miniature possums. A newborn opossum is about the size of a navy bean. The newborn possums spend the first 60 days or so nursing in their mama’s pouch.
The Virginia opossum is the only marsupial animal species living in North America. Opossums are generally regarded as shy and harmless animals, but they will bare their teeth and hiss when they sense danger. They have more teeth than any other North American mammal, 50 in number. Opossums are justifiably famous for “playing possum.” Possums pretend to be dead by rolling over, shutting their eyes, opening their mouth and going completely limp. Some opossums will allow their tongue to hang out and even drool. The purpose of this unique defense strategy is to deceive unsuspecting predators.
