Opossums are the only marsupial found in North America, where they live in urban settings, woodlands, and open fields. They are perhaps best known for "playing dead," a defense mechanism used to appear less appealing to predators. Opossums are nocturnal and omnivorous; their diet consists of insects, small rodents, fruits, berries, garbage, and even pet food.
Common Opossum Problems
- Opossums become aggressive when cornered and may bite, scratch, and hiss in order to escape.
- They're infested with problematic household pests such as ticks, fleas, mites, and lice.
- They are common carriers of diseases such as tuberculosis, tularemia and Chagas disease.
