Opossum at a Milwaukee County Park on January 14, 2018

At one of county parks in Milwaukee today, I spotted this cute Opossum. It was eating what appeared to be small scraps of food maybe that were in a parking area. Eating appeared to be a high priority as it did not seem to mind me parked in my car taking a few photos. After a few minutes it went over a rocky edge and disappeared out of sight. Images were taken on January 14, 2018.

    I love when we get the baby possums at the Wildlife Rehab Center at Wisconsin Humane Society. Their ears make them look like Mickey Mouse. And when they try to look scary and show their tiny teeth and hiss-hilarious! Did you know they can eat infected ticks and not get Lyme Disease? Did you know it’s extremely rare for them to get rabies due to their low body temperature (94-97 degrees) which is too low for the virus to survive?
