Virginia Opossum

The opossum (Didelphis virginiana) is a marsupial-like mammal common to the eastern half of North America. They are very good climbers thanks to opposable thumbs and a prehensile tail. They are omnivorous, meaning they will eat a wide range of food items from fruit to insects to eggs to mammal carrion (roadkill).
