Viginia Opossum

Didelphis virginiana


The Virginia Opossum is the only marsupial found in North American, north of Mexico. The Virginia Opossum has a surprisingly good relationship with humans, possibly due to being resistant to rabies and rarely transmitting diseases to humans.


Frequently spotted near garbage cans, crossing highways, or playing dead.
