Opossum or possum

Didelphis virginiana


My dogs found him in my workshop this morning! He was unharmed and full of cat food. I snapped some pics and put him into an old walnut tree.

Thanks @Ava T-B I'm new here and not sure how to respond. I put the story in the notes.

Wow, great spot. There has to be a story here -- how did you get a shot like this in the day? Is he/she in a zoo or animal rehab center?
Can you please add the scientific name and a reference (like wikipedia) so this spotting can be searchable? Spottings are recorded under their scientific name. Thanks.
