yes, these opossums are even in Toronto, we have seen them in the city which surprises us altogether. Thank you Cher, Noted.

What a great adaptive animal to find a way to live with us humans. With Planes, Trains, and Automobile's they find not only a way to survive, but multiply. I used to take a flashlight and see their red glowing eyes in the lemon orchard where I grew up. They really come out at night, which is likely why they survive so well. Noted.
