possom of some sort
algún tipo de zarigüeya
Cruce el Criollo, Pitalito, Huila, Colombia
From what I have read the species of opossums in Columbia are the Black-eared, or common, and the Andean white-eared. So this would be the same as your other spotting, D. pernigra. Check out the range maps for the whole genus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Didelphis.
