Meet Barley the Opossum. Opossums have been around since the time of the dinosaurs & make up the largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere, including 103 or more species in 19 genera. Possums are unusually resistant to the venom of venomous snakes and are extremely unlikely to acquire rabies. They have 50 very sharp teeth, more than any land mammal

Once saw an opossum roll its way down the length of my mixed border. Very rat-like tail. Very low cuteness rating.

Easter Possum- where's my eggs? And I want my marshmallow peeps or I'm not wearin the ears!

There may not be an Easter Bunny, but there is definitely an Easter Opossum. Happy Easter to All - The Easter Opossum!

Opossum mom and babies are cute and are another common animal around our property and woods.

If some people are supposedly married to their best friend then their spouse definitely won't need an enemy with that kind of BFF sleeping beside them!
