Weekly Animal Pic - Possum

The Clampetts quite like a possum or two popped into a nice hot stew. Wow, I am a poet and I know it.

American possums are not to be confused with Australian possums which although a protected species in Australia are a major pest in New Zealand. Here when we see them on the road we swerve to hit them. Oh how we hate possums!

Saying that, I think American possums seem quite cool. Has anyone tasted one?

Homer Simpson calls the big one Bitey.

San Nakji for President!

Wasn't that the Monorail episode, guest starring Leonard Nimoy?

Have you ever tasted a opposum? Is that you holding this rodent?

I don't know...that's a little possum.

I once came face to face with a mother possum with her babies in a tree. It wasn't a good encounter. She won...I retreated very quickly!

Neat picture; though I'm not crazy about possums.
