Ambassador Rachel was allowed to wander around the mammal room to get some exercise. We later discovered Rachel in a net! Was she just hanging out or did she want to be ensnared? She seemed to enjoy her newly acquired pouch. Swvawildlifecenter.org #swvawildlifecenter #virginiaopossum #cuteopossums

#tbt with another of our current animal ambassadors. Here's Frodo in the first week he made the move from hospital patient to one of our permanent residents. Still a little timid and much smaller than he is now! His first birthday will be this summer. ☀️

The smallest of the Virginia Opossums (Didelphis virginiana) that regularly visit our yard.  This one is obviously new this year because it's still quite little.  Some people find Opossums ugly, or creepy, but I think they're cute.  They're also great to have around because they eat lots of ticks, some species of which transmit Lyme Disease!  But, that's not all: Opossums are also mostly immune to Rabies and are partially to totally immune to the venom of Pit Vipers, such as rattlesnakes and cottonmouths. #virginiaopossum #didelphisvirginiana #possum #backyardbuddies #thingsthatgobumpinthenight #urbanwildlife #yardfriends #guildwood #scarborough #toronto #yyz #ontario #latergram

So Santa has come early this year and left a present under our Christmas Tree.

It’s a Christmas Opossum.

Sweet Pea sure does appreciate her gift from our Amazon Wish List. You can directly support our animals this holiday season by getting them a gift on their list. #seasonofgiving #shesbeennice #virginiaopossum
This Virginia Opossum was brought to the Center after having been trapped in a trash can. This occurs more often than you might think and the animals are generally fine, just trapped. In these cases, we encourage people to simply tip the can and let the opossum escape.
.

Luckily, these finders contacted the Winchester Police Department's Animal Control Unit. The officer who responded noted that this opossum had a fresh laceration extending along the bottom of the tail.
.

Once in care, the laceration was flushed and partially closed with a small area left open for drainage. Given its location, this wound is predisposed to getting into contact with the animal’s feces and must be cleaned frequently as it heals.
.

After a week in care, the wound is healing nicely and this patient is alert and behaving appropriately.
.

Help us prevent situations like this by securing your trash at all times. Even small amounts of food residues in empty trash bins can attract and potentially trap wildlife.
.

Thank you to the finders who called us about this case and to the officer who transported! We expect this patient to be ready for release in the next few weeks!

When threatened, opossums run, growl, belch, urinate and defecate. And when all else fails, they “play ‘possum" and act as if they are dead. It is an involuntary response (like fainting) rather than a conscious act. They roll over, become stiff, close their eyes (or stare off into space) and bare their teeth as saliva foams around the mouth and a foul-smelling fluid is secreted from glands. The catatonic state can last for up to four hours, and has proven effective as a deterrent to predators looking for a hot meal.

Frank the Opossum at an evening event with our nocturnal animals with our resident crazy lady.  The opossum has opposable "thumbs." The opossum's "thumbs" (called halux) are on its rear feet (so, technically they're toes), and abet the opossum’s formidable climbing skills. Primates and opossums are the only mammals with opposable first toes.

Happy Monday Morning to all of our Facebook followers.

Here’s a picture of frank our Virginia Opossum back during the summer months. He certainly has grown.

We are behind with paperwork at the moment due to be very busy but all outstanding emails, personal messages and anything else will get done today by between 18.00 - 19.00.

Ran into this dude while out #roaming. He flopped down & played dead when I walked over. I stood there & petted him with my walking stick. 😂 #animals #animalsofinstagram #opossum #virginiaopossum #marsupial #wildlife #mammals #zoolology #nature #naturalist #explorer #woods #forest #field

We found Eugene sleeping like this and we had to check to see if he was still alive! Haha!! #nonreleasable #virginiaopossum #educationambassador #daydreaming
I was lucky to meet this handsome man shortly before he passed. Truly one of my favorite mammals it’s unfortunate they have such a short lifespan. #educationambassador #naturecenter #notapet #opossum #virginiaopossum
So, there is still only ONE true opossum in my heart (she knows who she is <3) but I gotta say, this little dude is damn cute.

Sticking with the wildlife rehabilitation studio shots of my last two posts, here's one of my favorite animals that comes through the center: the Virginia opossum (Didelphis virginiana). Look at those feet! .

The opossum is North America's only marsupial. I absolutely welcome these cool little critters into my yard and garden. It's been reported that they can eat thousands of ticks per season. They are resistant to rabies due to their low body temp, eat venomous snakes and are immune to their venom! // Photo taken at Wings Of Hope Wildlife Rehab in Louisiana //

Today is #GivingTuesday and I am still working to raise funds for opossum enclosures! The photo above shows some of my intakes from last year, a litter I got all at once! At this size, they stay indoors inside an incubator but once they reach an adequate size  they get moved outdoors to get ready for release back into the wild. I haven't been able to keep any opossums for release since I don't have the proper caging outside. Being able to build enclosures ensures I can take in more opossums and also have room for nonreleaseables. Even if you can spare $1, every little bit helps! Thank you to each of you that has donated so far, I love you!

This is Oolio's mama. Please pray for my little baby. He's been sick and not wanting to eat much. We have started some meds, and he is eating more, but still not enough. I have help, but prayers to Jesus are much appreciated for my little baby. Thank you ❤

Frank and the birthday Boy

Frank the Virginia Opossum has a prehensile tail.

A prehensile tail is the tail of an animal that has adapted to be able to grasp or hold objects. Fully prehensile tails can be used to hold and manipulate objects, and in particular to aid arboreal creatures in finding and eating food in the trees.

Look at that baby!! I love opossums, they're so cute and actually really sweet creatures. I can't understand why people are actually scared of these guys. I was close enough to touch this one if I wanted to, and look no hissing, he never tried to bite either. He just climbed off the rail and went about his business.
