Out of all the creatures i've handled so far. Opposums look the scariest, but they're also the calmest to handle๐Ÿ˜ #crazybunnies

"No, the potty box is not for sleeping in..but since you both look so damn adorable, go ahead and continue. After all, I did just clean the thing." -Ma ๐Ÿฆ„ If you look closely you can see the hole Pablo has in his bottom jaw. It will close over time (if he grows enough) as should the hole in his palate. Why is there a random unicorn emoticon in my post? No real reason.

Baby opossums are unbelievably cute. At this age they are tube fed many times a day. Naps follow.#wildsantacruz #santacruzwildlife #opossum #virginiaopossum #wildliferescue #wildliferehab
Female opossums can have up to three litters in one year. Their first litter is usually conceived in early Spring but as marsupials they are only about the size of a kidney bean when they are first born and don't begin to emerge from their mother's pouch until they are about six months old.  We are starting to receive our expected second wave of orphaned opossums and currently have 13 in our care who will all be released back to the wild when they're old enough.

This night visitor to our garden had our guard mutts on high alert. The Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana) is the only marsupial found in North America north of Mexico. Like a lot of other marsupials, the opossum carry their young in pouch located on the mother's abdomen. They are also very beneficial to the areas they inhabit as they eat fallen rotting fruit, cockroaches, snails, mice, and even rats. .

Aren't baby opossums just the cutest? We see a lot of them at the clinic, often times because their mother is hit on the road. Did you know opossums take very good care of their fur and will eat any bugs such as ticks that they find on their body?

"Go away, I'm sleeping!" says the tough little opossum ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. This handsome fellow arrived last night for rehabilitation after a member of the public found him on the street in apparent distress. We anticipate that this little tough guy will be back in the wild very soon! If you'd like to support his care please stop by our Trivia & Jazz event on 8/19! (Link in our bio).

โ€œGet out of my pouch!โ€ All of our orphaned Virginia Opossums are given a surrogate pouch to mimic their motherโ€™s. They love to bundle up inside of it during the day while they all nap together. There are over one hundred species of opossums in Central and South America! But the only one you can find in the United States is the Virginia Opossum. swvawildlifecenter.org #swvawildlifecenter #virginiaopossum

Just a couple of our awesome opossums in care right now, snoozing off after a formula feeding. ๐Ÿ˜ด 
Remember, if you see a deceased adult opossum on the road, pull over and check for a pouch and babies if it's safe to do so - you may save some lives! If babies are present, collect the body/babies and contact your local wildlife rehabilitation center for further instructions.

A year ago today we lost our sweet boy #Calvin. Some of you may remember his story and the trauma he experienced before coming to me. He was such a sweet, gentle soul who wanted nothing more but to retire peacefully in the arms of someone who loved him. His body may have been wounded, but his heart was left intact. He made sure to show his gratitude by giving a gentle kiss or following you around the house for pets and treats. :) As an abandoned pet tossed out to fend for himself, I am lucky that he was able to make it my way and enjoy the last of his elder years in my care. I miss him every day. โ™ก So much. #opossumsofinstagram #opossums #opossum #didelphisvirginiana #didelphisalbiventris #didelphismarsupialis #didelphisaurita #virginiaopossum #awesomepossum #possum  #marsupials #instapossum #weeklyfluff #thedodo  #possumsofinstagram #petsofinstagram #weeklyfluff #petstagram #uniquepets

@Regrann from @blueridgewildlifectr -  The opossums are still coming!

Virginia Opossums have two seasons, one in April/May and another in July/August. These babies ("joeys") were found in the pouch of a dead mother after she had likely been struck by a car. A Good Samaritan stopped to check her pouch for babies, and good thing she did!

As the only marsupial in North America, opossums carry their young in their pouch, and then eventually they cling to her back until they are too large to all hold on. Once they fall off, mom does not return for them. These babies would still be dependent on their mother and will be raised until they are large enough to be on their own. 
If you are comfortable and it is safe to do so, please check deceased opossums for live babies that may be able to be saved. As always, give the Center a call to determine whether a wild baby requires assistance, and to decide what the next best step should be.

Early this morning we had a good laugh over these Virginia Opossums who all decided to drink water at the same time! Too funny! Consider making a donation to help provide care for the nearly 1,500 wild animals we have helped so far this year alone. We are funded entirely through donations like yours and have seen a huge increase in our patient load this year! https://swvawildlifecenter.org/make-a-donation/ #swvawildlifecenter #virginiaopossum

More Virginia opossums arrived at our center today. I don't know why but, many people think that opossums are ugly? What people might not know is that when opossums are waddling around at night they pick up lots of ticks. Some ticks end up getting their blood meal from the possum. But more than 90 percent of them end up being groomed away and swallowed. They say 1 opossum can kill up to 5000 ticks in 1 year! #sweetbriarnaturecenter #wildliferehab #wildlifepreserve #virginiaopossum #opossums #opossumeducation #opossum #notforprofit #rescue #donate #volunteer #educate #animalsofinstagram

RIP BABY VIRGINIA OPOSSUM After rescuing this little baby from the school yard back in June I took her to Toronto Wildlife Rescue and handed her over to their care.  I just received a followup and sadly she passed away 10 days later.  I want to tell you how impressed I was with the level of care that they gave her before she passed on her own. She was underweight and dehydrated when I brought her in. She was hand fed and given fluids over the next week but was not responding well.  She started to have seizures and became immobile. They moved her to icu and put her on iron & b12 supplements but unfortunately she passed away on her own on July 2nd.  I'm glad I took her there so at least she had a chance unfortunately there is no care for infant rescues like the care of a mother. #opossum #babyopossum #virginiaopossum #torontowildliferescue #springbabies #babyanimals #iloveanimals #toronto #animalrights #vegan #animals #animalrescue #wildlife #nature #mothernature #dotherightthing

Moose here- I was recently called to action, this time for an opossum. Specifically this is known as a Virginia Opossum- or as we nicknamed him, Trash. He was found in a busy city near his recently expired mother. Unfortunately she'd been hit by a car, a common end for many of their kind. While some people think of possum as scary or gross they're actually very unique and interesting. As the only marsupial in America you'd think humans would be more interested in them and the things that set them apart from other species. I know I don't have a tail that can do anything but my friend Trash here, his tail is prehensile- he can use it to hold on to things! He even had his own thumbs on his rear feet- my feet are just round with felt sewed to the bottom... oh well. Trash used me as a companion while the adults cared for him and until he was ultimately moved to a wildlife rehabilitation facility. Traveling to the wildlife facility is always a fascinating trip. Once we finally arrive there's always many different species being cared for and getting well again. The trip home is always long and boring- since usually I've just had to part with a new friend as was the case with my pal Trash. Now he's able to grow up healthy and well and go back into the world again. Hopefully he'll avoid cars, and being the opportunistic eater that he is, he'll find himself plenty of yummy trash!

Well, this is me, folks. I'm a rescue opossum that wasn't able to be released, unlike my siblings. So my human Mom has taken me in. Today is my first day in my new home! I was born in April 2017. Mom and Dad sure love me and opossums, in general. My Dad and her take care of all my kin outside, too! Us opossums are very misunderstood and my Mom's mission is to help spread the word that we aren't a threat. Hopefully we can change some minds out there! ๐Ÿ’–โœŒ๏ธ #peacefulopossum #rescueopossum #rescuepetsofinstagram #opossums #possums #gentle #helptheenvironment #naturesrecyclers #ieatticks #wellidontbutmykindoes #iprefermealworms #marsupial #pouch #northamericasonlymarsupial #virginiaopossum #pleaserespectus

This is for those of y'all who felt like George may have had a tinge of guilt over the corn incident. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿญ #noshame #possum #opossum #virginiaopossum #george #georgejones #georgejonespossum #georgejonesthepossum

Fun fact: studies have shown that opossums can eat up to 4,000 ticks a week! Now tell me, are they really so bad? #virginiaopossum #marsupials #creaturesofthenight #knowyourfacts

Can't find mama? Then grab the next best thing. @kerplunkskunx and I are damn good baby mamas. #raisingbabies #buschwildlife #wildliferehab #ilovemyjob #virginiaopossum #opossum
I knew George was acting real sneaky the other night.  I woke up and realized that he'd snuck a corn cob into his "nest" and I woke up with corn *everywhere*... I will now be conducting nightly shakedowns of his sleeping quarters from here on out. โค๐Ÿญ #silly #badboy #opossum #possum #virginiaopossum #george #georgejones #georgejonespossum #georgejonesthepossum #sneaky #corn

Not very appreciative of my hospitality before his release tonight. #virginiaopossum #voplife #perfectspecimen
Round 2 of baby opossums is upon us!! Virginia Opossums have two breeding seasons annually. One in the spring and early summer, then another in late summer into early fall. This second round feels a bit early this year. We know y'all are ready for those cute pink noses....not sure if we are!! #opossum #virginiaopossum #pouchbabies #marsupial #whiskers #pinknose #boopable #wildliferehab #waldenspuddle
Jerry Harvey volunteered again this morning, and today he got to hand feed Bartok breakfast. He said it was messy like mealtime at the old folk's home. Lol! #virginiaopossum #nonreleasable #educationambassador
Happy to share that all 13 babies did great at their first tube feeding today! It is important to get wild orphans to a licensed rehabilitator so that all of their needs can be met. These #baby #virginiaopossum will be in a temperature controlled incubator and tube fed by trained handlers several times a day. #wildliferehabilitation #woodlandswildliferefuge
