opossums are creatures with which you can probably live and let live—they come out after dark, so you may never see them, and they’ll run from you if you do; they eat pests; and they don’t carry rabies.
Mom and baby opossums. A rehabber once told me that when the mom stops the babies will all get off but when she is ready to go again they better climb on board or she will walk off and leave the stragglers behind!
Possums get such a bad rap. They are truly the sweetest little things and grow up to be wonderful adults. Had one as pet for 3 years and still miss her. never had one, but I agree they get a bad rap for unfair reasons
