Possum Information

Appearance:

An opossum is a whitish or grayish mammal about the size of a house cat. Its face is long and pointed and its ears are rounded and hairless. Maximum length is 40 inches; the rat-like tail is slightly less than half the total length. Opossums may weigh as much as 14 pounds.

Habit:

Opossums living near people may visit compost piles, garbage cans, or food dishes intended for dogs, cats, and other pets.

Diet:

Foods preferred by opossums are mainly insects or dead animals. Opossums also eat considerable amounts of fruits and grains.

Reproduction:

The opossum’s mating season is January to July in warmer parts of the range but may start a month later and end a month earlier in northern areas. Opossums may raise two, rarely three, litters per year.
