albino Virginia Opossum

Didelphis virginiana


This is an old individual that lives in the area. Light colored individuals also are found in the area but this is the only albino. Might be genetic reasons why nobody knows.

again, remember this one is old so not as heavy in weight and hair is thinner. If you look online there is photos of a baby albino opossum and they look very cute and fuzzy.
