Opossums

A 3 years old boy sits near a pregnant woman.

Boy: Why do you look so fat?

Pregnant woman: I have a baby inside me.

Boy: Is it a good baby?

Pregnant woman: Yes, it is a very good baby.

Boy: Then why did you eat it?!

Interesting Fact:  These animals are most famous for “playing possum.” When threatened by dogs, foxes, or bobcats, opossums sometimes flop onto their sides and lie on the ground with their eyes closed or staring fixedly into space. They extend their tongues and generally appear to be dead. This ploy may put a predator off its guard and allow the opossum an opportunity to make its escape.

  1. Possums are such gentle creatures. We have 3 wild Possums that visit our yard regularly. We feed them and watch them on our Nest Cam outdoor camera. I’ve written about them on my blog if you’d like to learn more about them. They are amazing! Thanks for sharing 🙋🐾

    • That is amazing, I will definitely check it out. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂

    • Hehehe. I am really glad that I was able to show you it. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. Happy Blogging! 🙂

  2. I see dead possums (literally, not playing) by the side of the road a couple times a month in the Austin area. They are pretty ruthless, so I don’t feel sad for them. The one in your pic looks pretty tore up from scavenging!

    • Yeah they are not pleasant animals and this one does looks like he’s been through some stuff. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
