Facts About Opossums
An opossum is a whitish or grayish mammal about the size of a house cat. Its face is long and pointed and its ears are rounded and hairless. Maximum length is 40 inches; the rat-like tail is slightly less than half the total length. Opossums may weigh as much as 14 pounds.
Opossums living near people may visit compost piles, garbage cans, or food dishes intended for dogs, cats, and other pets.
Foods preferred by opossums are mainly insects or dead animals. Opossums also eat considerable amounts of fruits and grains.
The opossum’s mating season is January to July in warmer parts of the range but may start a month later and end a month earlier in northern areas. Opossums may raise two, rarely three, litters per year.
