I have a lot of night visitors because I have a ground feeder for the squirrels during the day so, by night, the possums and raccoons finish off anything that is left....This little guy, I believe, is a juvenile. I often see families foraging together, especially the raccoons!

What a cute opossum. I saw one of these scurrying in my yard a few months ago.
