Opossum (Didelphis virginiana)
This opossum  (Didelphis virginiana) was walking around  the yard this morning looking for something to eat.  He eats just about anything.  He was checking out the compost bins, the bird feeder and then the garage door; they like to live in outbuildings so make sure your doors remain closed.  They can become a problem  if they get into buildings.   But we rather like the little critter as he eats everything and I am always amazed when  frightened opossums  play dead.  He looks really cute here because you cannot see his ugly naked tail.
