All About Possums!

Join us on Saturday, June 9th at 11am for a celebration of the humble possum!

Did you know:

Due to an opossum's low body temperature and successful immune system, it's very rare for one to carry rabies.

In northern regions, opossums often have abnormally short tails - the ends are lost due to frostbite.

The Virginia opossum has more teeth than any other North American Mammal - 50, to be exact.
