Baby Oppossum

Didelphidae

Description:

Opossums make up the largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere, including 103 or more species in 19 genera. They are also commonly called possums, though that term technically refers to Australian fauna of the suborder Phalangeriformes.

Notes:

This little guy was nursed by one of our volunteers at the Wilflife Rescue Center of Sonoma County and now shown here being transfered to our medical team room. 1 of 6 baby Opposoms, all healthy as can be.
