Interesting how many critters were picked up by the cam... I'm still trying to figure out if the possum was the guilty party or not. Is there more to come?

Maybe I did...Jeff always says I don't read carefully (and sometimes he is right), but this time I think I maybe just forgot!

Well, then, I guess we have a long way to go!

An Opossums tail has no fur upon it...I'd say it would be comparable to a rats, naked and slightly rough.

Wait until you see what tomorrow brings!

Here's a good write-up on the opossum: Natives of the Cook Forest - Wildlife Notes - Opossum
Quote:
The opossum, Didelphis virginiana (previously D. marsupialis virginiana) is one of the world's oldest living mammals, and the only marsupial on our continent.

Thanks for the addition. Benj1. It's FULL of useful information.

They seldom spend two successive nights in the same den. Opossums do not dig their burrows, although they may line existing cavities with leaves.
