A global citizen science platform
to discover, share and identify wildlife
It's an opossum. I don't know what species lives in Southern California. This one was the size of a large house cat. It was at the bottom of a 4' deep concrete trench, laying on its side and attracting flies. We got it to lick water off a branch. It perked up a bit, but we scooped it into a box and took it to project wildlife for a checkup anyway.
This was a concrete trench on a college campus...probably not choice habitat.
