"Ken Kritter Korner"
Ken’s “Critter” Facts for FALL are Oppossums
642011opossuminattic.jpg

There are more than 60 different species of opossum, which are often called possums. The most notable is the Virginia opossum or common opossum—the only marsupial (pouched mammal) found in the United States and Canada.

A female opossum gives birth to helpless young as tiny as honeybees. Babies immediately crawl into the mother's pouch, where they continue to develop. Opossums may give birth to as many as 20 babies in a litter, but fewer than half of them survive. These animals are most famous for "playing possum." When threatened by dogs, foxes, bobcats,etc…, opossums sometimes flop onto their sides and lie on the ground with their eyes closed or staring fixedly into space. They extend their tongues and generally appear to be dead. This ploy may put a predator off its guard and allow the opossum an opportunity to make its escape. Opossum can carry diseases such as leptospirosis, tuberculosis, relapsing fever, tularemia, spotted fever, toxoplasmosis, coccidiosis,  trichomoniasis, and Chagas disease. They may also be infested with fleas, ticks, mites, and lice. To deter opossums an array of chemical products is marketed for repelling various wildlife species but, unfortunately, none offer significant results

This “Critter” should not be approached!!!

 A professional, such as our selves, should be contacted. We will, if possible, humanely re-located the “Critter” and properly cleaned and sanitized the area.
